    Icon7 S2 505 GTi Radiator Cap Cracked

    Hi all,
    ...need to replace radiator cap (big plastic nut which retains the coolant level sender); can any 505 buffs tell me if I can just get the cap without the sender? Appreciate any advice.

    +1 if this may also apply to 205's
    The wrong oil is better than no oil at all.

    From: ventilo_electrique

    We have: http://www.peugeot505.fr/mecanique/V...e/p1080463.jpg

    To the right, with red plug detached - is this what you are referring to?

    For the 205 there are two variants - 1306.24 and 1306.32 - it's not clear what the difference may be. Both are allegedly still available. You might try Oz dealers or Dean Hunter.


    ETA: Very "clever" - someone is knocking off FB style scripting to polish up links. Next stop - optional thumbnails?

    Yes thanks Addo,

    That appears to be the one; are you saying it is possible to get the 'nut/cap' alone without the sender?

    Hello Simon, it is sold as an assembly only. I believe the chlorinated water many of us start with when blending coolant, damages the plastic and hence a used part may or may not see you well.

    Still out of resources for crossing 205 and 505 part numbers but you might see if either Caravelle or EAI have the old paper books. None of the French parts houses list a reproduction item and a quick surf of European websites didn't offer old stock.

    The numbers don't cross to CitroŽn's equivalent of the 205 either.

    Thanks Addo,

    I guess 25 + years isn't too bad...if someone has a 2nd hand cap lying around, it'd be worth a try at least. At the moment the system is working ok, no fluid coolant loss and temperature is fine, but I'd like to get my hands on a good one before things change for the worse.

    Update: I have taken to one of my caps with an old soldering iron to 'weld' up the crack; so far it seems to have done the trick. I will still try to track down another one though, just to be sure.
