Sorry for a non-Audi question but...

My Mercedes 560SEL has a radiator with plastic tanks with a slow
leak at the joints. The MB service manual shows the procedure for repairing
such leaks but it seems involved. I am thinking of doing it myself. Anyone
have experience fixing plastic radiator tank leaks? Any advice/pointers?
