My beloved 2002 Forester (2.0l engine) started to leak coolant from the top of the radiator. There’s a tiny hole in the plastic on top that spits out coolant. Is there a way to replace only the plastic part at the top or do I need to replace the whole radiator? Or maybe there’s another solution? Thank you !

No, just replace the radiator. It isn't horribly difficult and will solve your issue. Don't go to Subaru for a new radiator. You should be able to pick up an aftermarket radiator for about 100 bucks, shipped.

I've been using Radiators.com
They appear to be near me because whevever I've ordered stuff, it is there the next day. The last one was on my wife's Legacy just before winter set in. I seem to remember it was marked Denso.
Not sure whether they deliver to Australia but worth a shot.

Thanks so much! I’ll give it a go

here most suby radiators from 2008-2010 get changed after 6-8 years, 18 years sounds a lot!
