My 2013 has a small leak (no coolant level drop, needle at the middle) on the aluminum-plastic end cap seam, upper "North-American passenger" side.
That side has a gear clamp vs a crimp clamp, I bet the dealer damaged it when performing a coolant flush years ago under the care free program.
You can see the buildup of the dried coolant from it escaping.
Are there any fitment aspects to be aware of with XC90 radiators over the years?
I plan to use this TYC radiator:
It seems that all radiators cross reference (and are compatible) from 2004-2014, regardless of engine.
The VIDA part is 31293550 for USA and Canada (no anti-smog coating).
I'd rather not go OEM if the OEM is so easily damaged (and its over 1/3 the price up in Canada).
Currently at 130k KM / 80k miles.
My biggest concern is the transmission cooler lines re-connecting properly.
