Can my nipple be fixed?

The nipple to connect a hose from the radiator to the expansion tank has a little crack in it. It's plastic and I'm wondering if it can be sealed or something. Would JB Weld work?

for a patch job yes, I would not risk driving any big distance with it though

I think i'd see your nearest plastic surgeon, while he's in there get them to perk those suckers up and they'll be good as new.

Mmm...so it'll be a bad idea to try to go t HC with that. I'll look to get a new radiator. I hope everything will be set by then.

Definately go through Jay Lilley if you want a stock one and remember to loosen the bolt the wrong way

Hhaaaa...the car is finally back to normal and ready for HC. I ended up getting the radiator at completeradiators.com. It was the same radiator as oem but was 50% less and shipping was free. However, I would double check with them if you have an ///M. I took a glance at the radiator for the M and it was the same as mine. From my understanding, they're supposed to be different.

Anyway, just thought I'd spread the word.

I realize this is an old thread; but I'm researching the radiator nipple mishap problem and Max at OEMBimmerparts and cn90 together devised a nice non-destructive radiator nipple removal procedure that we need to be cross linked into the record for the very next person to test and report back upon:
