    I'm not sure where you can buy generic radiator caps from. There is a site in the US that sells them.

    To ensure a proper seal, I'd be looking for one which matches the original.

    The German supplier does not stock the sensor. Also with shipping this is €32. Surely much cheaper for a generic sensor from a UK supplier.

    The 0Ä price doesn't fill me with hope that this part is stocked.

    Suggest you try SMT in Stirling if it is just a couple of parts you are still looking for. Derek in stores replied the same morning earlier this week. There is also Campbell Plant Hire in Inverness who might know of alternative parts etc.

    Better to find a cheap alternative generic radiator cap.

    Thanks, I'll look them up. However I live nowhere near either of those places!

    Previous contact with a Volvo CE parts dealer has told me that the Mitsubishi engine parts are NLA via Volvo.

    For things like the temp sensor, oil pressure switch and probably the radiator cap, I'd start by taking your parts in as samples and visiting Halfords or similar.

    Tridon have several catalogues that may provide some insight

    (when you pull out the temp sensor, stuff an ear plug into the hole to stop it draining)
