You can't fix it. You need to get a new radiator.
You require only a Behr or Nissans Brand.
Do not get a cheap PRC knockoff radiator, you will have no end of problems.
You can ring MBSpares in Canberra for a new one. around $300.00
You will need to provide your VIN number.
It's a pretty standard Radiator.
I have one exactly the same as yours in my garage - broken neck.
This is generally caused by the wrong type of coolant being used in the system.
The new radiators have a metal collar in them to lessen the chance of the neck breaking.
Do not try and attempt to ruin your car at those high temperatures. You risk doing damage to the head and gasket.
When the car is repaired make sure you run the correct coolant in it.
