  • Audi S2 ABY Radiator


    Can someone point me into the direction of where I may be able to get hold of an S2 Aby Rad (still using the Aux Rad) ?

    Tried the dealers longer available

    I got my unit a couple of years ago through Bennetts. I know theres 2 types you can get but i cant remember the brands. I think one has the metal top and bottom caps and the other has plastic ones and i know one of them are renowned for leaking but i cant remember which and I cant remember what one I got im afraid. Im sure someone with the knowledge will be along soon to give some better help than I have.

                  I didn't think the Nissens rad's where very good John. Not for sale but i have got a new hella one in the garage. Payed £140 i think. I can go have a look at the part number on the box if this helps. Regard Lynn

                    Nissens have changed their design, they have plastic end tanks now like the original.
                    I needed a new one asap a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t find a Behr one so I didn’t have another option, I didn’t want a used one.

                      All the options are on under the OE part number of 893121251S, as of today only the Nissens one at £95 is showing as in stock.

                        Be very carful using these clowns at Autodoc. A lot off the lads have had trouble with parts being wrong and returning them even more so. I got my ones from Motor parts direct with out any problems. Maybe worth a call ask if they can help. Good luck. lynn

                          Behr/Hella p/n is 8MK 376 711 281
                          Order through a Hella dealer.

                          NEVER buy from Autodoc - sure it looks cheap, but lots of it is counterfeit - I have had fake FAG wheel bearings and fake Reinz gaskets from them in the past. Their stock status is absolute fiction (They stock NOTHING and drop-ship EVERYTHING) and their service is the worlds worst by a long margin - getting a return or refund is nigh on impossible.
