Valeo Radiator Replacement

I have a 2002 C230 coupe and I just replaced my Valeo radiator, Iím the second owner of the car and I think the radiator was the original since 2002. I read a lot of threads about Valeo radiators had issues with atf mixing with the coolant, I replaced the Valeo with a Behr radiator for piece of mind, I didnít have any coolant in the atf or vice versa, The Coolant and atf was nice and clean, Hopefully I donít have to replace my Behr radiator for a long long time😊

Bypass the radiator with a completely separate transmission cooler and you'll never have to think about it again. Also your transmission will operate at a lower temp.

Nice work. The job looks like a bit of a pita.
