We haven't gotten Citreons here for MANY years.

I suggest you take the piece to a radiator shop to see if they can repair it, if not, order a new part for it.

If you're in the US, you may have to search around for parts, that marque is much more prevelant in Europe.

If you are really adventurous... assuming you cant find the part... you can try some J B Weld and see if that helps. Then again, if it fails and you lose all your coolant, dont blame me.

Hose clamp?

maybe you can put a hose clamp lined with rubber like from an inner tube.Pretty jury rigged but it might work.Also dont blame me if it fails it was just a thought.

I had a 1988 CX TRI 5 speed which needed a radiator, I had a 1980 CX Prestige whose Rad was all metal, i.e. Brass so this was given to a local place where they would be able to rebuild like new and it was rebuilt like new, the old radiator in the late mode CX's were made of plastic , hence were not recommend repairing them,in any case metal is better.
I also have a 1990 Citroen XM 3 Litre. Automatique in mint condition, however I am always concerned about getting parts for it overseas.
