Replacing Radiator write up

Audi had a repair kit for the upper hose connection at one time, but you can
improvise. Find a piece of tubing, Cu or CPVC that just fits tightly inside
the old fitting and epoxy it in, extending into the tank. I have replaced a
rad on the 200 only because a plastic tank split open. IMO Audi hoses last
forever, and there is enough material that the ends can be cut back a half
inch if need be.
