Hi..

 

Hopefully i can help..

 

Just to clarify - Are you actually loosing coolant since this fault occurred and isnt actually rain water instead?

 

Does the car have air conditioning fitted?

Ido have to top up the radiator often,


 


No air conditioning fitted.

Hi..there thanks for your reply..

Ok..if there is a marked decrease in the coolant reservoir then that will confirm as you suspected..I have the official removal procedure below once you have a replacement to fit..This is for the Astra F series 1996







Bleeding the system..You can remove the small ect sensor on the thermostat housing as this can help whilst your filling up to expel any air trapped in the system..ensure once the matrix is replaced is to have the heater set to HOT too..


I do hope this helps you out - if you need to ask anything else or include anything further then just continue before you rate
