1984 GW 1200 AC - Coolant Leak

Post by Lostnomad1 »



Hello,
New to forums.

Just found a very small puddle of coolant under my 1984 GW.

Bolt is leaking as seen in photos, easy fix? Very slow small drip.

Make sure it is actually coming from the bolt, and not from the weep hole (which is right next to that bolt).

If it is in fact the bolt, just pull the bolt and put a new copper crush washer on it before reinstalling it.

But if it's coming from the weep hole, it's time to read through this: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=275

Very easy fix, didn't even need a crush washer but to be tightened.

Coolant is low and have order silicate free coming this weekend. Thanks for advice.
