My car is a 2002 TF160.

I have been told that the oil cooler pipes are corroded. Looks like a difficult job. Anyone able to shed some light on it and where to get the parts from?

Hmm, the lack or reply suggests no one has any experiance of this. Anyone know where I can at least get the parts??

I think it is the first time I have seen this question so I suspect it is quite uncommon for the oil pipes to corrode. I do know that others in the past have thought about retrofitting the oil cooler (I am assuming this is a 160?) and they have been put off with the lack of space with the engine in place.

It does look like Rimmer's have the parts albeit at a price MGF and MG TF Engine Oil Cooler - 1.8 | Rimmer Bros

another option is to find local to you a hydraulics supplier to make you up a set, near me there is a firm called Designation, they sell and can also make up a set of oil pipes, I’ve already have had a chat with them and when I get round to fitting an oil to coolant heat extractor to my car they will be making up the pipework

Well all sorted now. Unfortunately the oil cooler pipes are no longer available and stocks have it seems been exhausted, even in Holland.

So! Done away with the cooler and a standard oil filter housing has been fitted.

The OE manufactuer has stopped trading and getting new pipes made up was a no go as they have an individual fitting which is no longer made not available. The cooler is still in place, but the pipes are now tide up out of the way incase I ever manage to get some pipes.
