Default Manual radiator???

It's time for me to replace my radiator.

My car is a manual and only has the fittings for the oil cooler on the passenger side. It seems like all the radiators available online have the transmission cooler with the fittings on the drivers side as well.

Does anyone know if the auto radiator will work on a manual car? I know it will fit, but will I just plug the trans cooler fittings?

Yep, it should work just fine. On some models, the manual radiator isn't even available from Volvo anymore. The part number supercedes to the automatic one.

You do not need to plug the trans cooler fittings. Leave them open.
