slight coolant leak advice please???

Hi there

changed my coolant the other day as it was filled with pretty much water, I think the reason for this was because it has a little leak.... If im looking into the engine bay its at the bottom right corner of the radiator, maybe the rad pipe that comes off the rad!!!

Just thought I would post and see if anybody had any ideas if it could be something else.

Has anyone used a sealant called K-seal before? Was gonna chuck some in too see if it fixes the leak.

Cheers

Steve

I had my upper rad pipe just by hose clip leaking engine side the hose clip needed to be tightened a bit so it could be the hose clip that needs tightening at the end of your rad pipe at lower end this sorted my problem.............
