In that situation, and only then, I'd give the sanding a shot before replacing the radiator...but it's the first I've heard of that issue here...and I read a lot here. But, that said, my concern was whether he had the decent skill. If you're sanding plastic to then have a pressure seal from o-ring, you'd need to be very careful and finish with a very fine sandpaper.
Upcoming NYC dates: Jan 8 and 27. See Facebook for other shows and PM me if you can make one...love to see you there!
Mangofy your E46!
