New Radiator Fitted / Low Coolant

Hi All, I have just had the near side radiator changed on my 99 2.5. I drove it home about 20 miles, to find this evening that the coolant was down to half full on the gauge in the boot. There are no evident leaks under the car and the car was perfect driving it back yesterday. Any ideas ? Cheers Ian

Hi Ian probably had some air in it post new rad. The fluid would have needed topping up if they clamped the hose and replaced the rad, or they would have drained and replaced all the coolant. I would top up to correct level with distilled water and keep an eye on the level. Likely no issue
