Commonly, any water leak issues shop will change the radiator first, can get fast money
For the 408T, water missing issue is not only due to radiator, sadly, many factors can contribute to it, especially the water intake system, Turbo system etc.
Do not send your car to normal radiator shop to repair, go to Peugeot specialist to do it, they basically know what are the usual parts that need to change. And if your car out of warranty, prepare money.
Actually, if you get a good foreman, he can help you repair it for a small charge than change it.
But nowadays, parts are designed to be changed and not repaired, so most of the time, if any repairs are down, it most last long.

I remember my friend's PUG 306 had plastic radiator. My mechanic epoxy the leak, then after a while leak from somewhere else. The whole radiator was brittle already, so in the end changed the radiator. Seems it cost RM1k plus....
