Coolant Pipe Joint Leak


Expect the best, and accept no substitute.

Products for your Boxster, Cayman and Carrera.
I have a small coolant leak at a rigid pipe joint under the RH sill, near the rear wheel arch. It's the larger diameter tube of the two.

When you move the pipe at the joint you can see the leak.

Is it just a new 'O ring to fix, or more complicated?

Durr... Should have mentioned it's an Air Con coolant pipe - sorry.

... whether it's just an O-ring at the joint or a crack on the tube.
In order to fix it, the refrigerant must be evacuated and that requires a specific evacuation system.
You cannot allow for it to vent into the atmosphere. it's unlawful.
Take it to a specialist.
Happy Boxstering,
Pedro
