Aaaaw s**t!

Our lovely 500 twin-air lounge has a headache. Silly bint turned right across my path at a set of traffic lights and did this to our car. No-one hurt but mightily cheesed off. It's away being evaluated by the insurers.
We have a Hyundai i-10 on loan and apart from a gutless engine and a clutch action that would challenge the Mighty Hulk it's not bad.

Re: Aaaaw s**t!

Not really. It dumped a load of water so the radiator will be knacked, but I don't think it's too bad. It drove OK up the road after the crash (just to clear the junction) so I reckon it's sound.

Re: Aaaaw s**t!

Was the water from the screen washer bottle? The list of parts will be quite long but looks simple to fix, one for Typecastboy?

Bad luck. I had a knock a month ago, I know how you feel. It will be sorted. Importantly nobody got hurt. Good luck!

Re: Aaaaw s**t!

Thanks Menalabb, I'm looking forward to getting the 500 back as I feel a bit low-rent driving around in the Hyundai. It just doesn't have the style (or the go!) of the Fiat.

John, you may be correct about the washer bottle, but I could see the bottom corner of what I thought was the radiator (there was a metal tube going into it) and it was all bent so I assumed the rad had been damaged.

Re: Aaaaw s**t!

Yeah, screen wash bottle is just behind that impact so it's more than likely that.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if it ended up a Cat D thought

I'll buy it!

The rad with the metal tubing is the AC condenser so you'll need a new one (probably ) along with a new rad, the piping to the condenser could be an issue and not cheap.

Re: Aaaaw s**t!

Assuming it's on the other persons insurance at least whatever needs replacing will be done so it doesn't matter whether the condenser or tubing is damaged. If you were paying it would be a trip to the Bay of E.
