Radiator difference between manual/automatic cars

Post by nicolla »

So, the topic says it. I have C4 Picasso 2.0HDI from 2007
About 6 months ago I replaced radiator, but now someone noticed that 2 pipes are touching pretty unnatural. One is coming out of radiator, and another is the pipe for turbo.
Picture attached.


My question is - is there a difference between radiators for manual and automatic gearbox versions of the same car?
My VIN is VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff] - that might be important if someone want to help me find out the right version.

OMG, car services here are so so stressful, I need to do their job lol :)
Thank you very much for reading about my problems :D

Yes, the hoses are completely different on some parts of the cooling system from a manual to an Auto for this engine.

If you need official parts info and you can't already find the info you need on the Forum, we do ask for a membership upgrade for official parts data as we are in turn charged for this. It will cover you for future parts requests for up to 2 years, so excellent value.

If interested, links are below, then pop your VIN up.
