Default Radiator Advice

Guys, please view the pictures...seems my radiator is linking. Though its not too much, but I am worried if it gets worst. Please advice either to

1: put any additive
2: Just replace part attached to radiator
3: Complete radiator.
4: Just put silicon can works


And how it is easy if I try to change my self. Will appreciate your advices.


Thanks

Just replace it. The additives are a waste.

Lor3nzod: Did you replace the whole radiator because so far I know this leaking part lose silicon because of heat, it may need replace if broken or just by opening and fixing again with silicon.

If replaced, which one you used after market or genuine ...please recommend.

I haven't replaced mine yet but it is getting worse, it started out very small but now i'm filling my reservoir every 3-4 days.. Going to have plans changing it out with OEM part from volvo.
