    Angry 2.2 Cooling fluid on the floor.

    Hello,

    I've found out that during winter the cooling fluid is leaking from somewhere and on to the driver's side carpet. My car is left hand drive and there's about 100 ml. of water each morning there.

    The water seems to drop from above the acceleration pedal.

    Does the engine cooling fluid travel trough the car?

    Any advice ?

    Thanks !

    P.S. I know it's cooling fluid since i have to top it up each morning.

    have a look at the rubber gasket thats there for non fly by wire cars or the bonnet cable

    now it could also be the heater thats on its way out as that uses hot water from the engine to heat up the car

    above the acceleration pedal there will be 2 black rubber gaskets
    you will need to take off a bit of trim under the bonnet handle an look up your see the gaskets that are there there will be 2 there
