Looks like just a bunch of allen-keyed bolts holding the plexi-glass cover on, should be easy to unscrew the bolts and take the cover off to clean the inside. The big black o-ring is sitting in a recess in the metal block, shouldn't have to come out at all but if it did then should just pop back in.

I would have a go, especially as those bits in the fins will be stopping the flow of coolant

The block came apart really easily and the oring actually stayed in place for the most part, I was able to easily replace the rest with a bit of water, much easier than it was flipping the G1/4 ports on the side of the block. All clean now, there was some more crap hiding under the metal part of the block which you couldnt see from the surface, it was neat to see how it all works on the inside, not a view you usually get smile.gif

Any chance that the flipped G1/4 ports are the source of the leak? What exactly did you do to flip them around?

nope the leak was the other side of the case. I unscrewed the acetal block and rotated it 180 degrees so that the EK logo is the right way up when the block is in the case

Here you go, looking back at it, it looks like it may just have been a loose fitting on the run between the reservoir and the side radiator where perhaps the acrylic tubing wasnt pushed in fully.

That tube has multiple bends. Is it possible the tube got flattened a bit and doesn't sit properly in the fitting? What fittings are you using there? C47 or C48?

No I have checked the tube and it is fine, I had a C47 in there so 2 orings but something must have been loose
