94 850 turbo radiator replacement. questions.


My 94 850 turbo wagon's radiator is leaking where the left side end
cap is attached to the core, so I'll need to replace it.
http://www.volvospeed.com/Repair/Radiator850turbo.php
has a pretty good replacement procedure, but doesn't get into much
detail about the oil and transmission cooler hoses.

Will it be necessary to replace the O-rings on these hose fittings,
assuming there are rings? (I'm unfamiliar with this type of hose
connector.)

Are most aftermarket radiators of decent quality and do they have all
the necessary bolt holes?

If you want to assure a leak proof connection, make sure you have
orings. There's also another piece of hard rubber in there that's not
quite a seal, it may be to provide some tension on the retaining clip.
And I always replace the retaining clip, as they can get sprung and not
hold the joint together properly.

I've never needed to change one of these rads, so I can't comment on
aftermarket quality.
