Is there any way to repair a slow leak in a 99 V70XC radiator? It appears that the leak is either n the plastic side tank on the lower right side or in the interface between the tank and the core with the cooling fins.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure where you are located (you can update in your usercp profile) but you can buy from an auto parts store a plastic weld that can repair the plastic tank. I would look to replace it because it will probably continue to have another failure. If the core is damaged depending on where the leak is you can have those welded.

Good luck!

Those cars are VERY common for the radiator leaking at that location right at the seam so a patch will seldom work, usually requires replacement. Sorry !
