Hi All,
Please see the attached pictures for the location of the leak.
Is that something fixable or better just to replace the radiator?
I am handy but not an expert in anyway.
Thank you in advance for your advice.

    The end section is cracked. That radiator is done.

    Fortunately used radiators are not hard to find. New ones are quite expensive.  You should replace that with the same material (cast iron) and heating capacity, assuming the room heats evenly and well.
