hi phil check your footwells under your carpets you may have a leak from the matrix pipes connected to your heater. dont just feel the carpets you must look below them as the water usually leaks below the soundproofing !!!! good luck

Airlock ? Headgasket ? Check where your pipes to the heater go through the bulkhead especialy when car hot and pipes expanded get the engine hot turn the heater up full fan on full then top up ! .Also check oil for water and water for oil sign of headgasket failure ? Run very very strong anti-freeze mixtre 80% this will flush a lot of the crap out of your coolant system run for a couple off days like that then empty coolant flush both ways with hose then refil as befor should sort coolant system out .
