Heater matrix probably, footwell smell of antifreeze?

Actually its normally a couple of o rings that leak, connecting matrix with pipes that go though bulkhead in to engine bay, they can be changed in situ but can be a bit tricky re-asembling.

cheers Ian , yes you can smell antifreeze , could this be a DIY job (use to be fitter in the seventies ) you mention 0 rings (dealer part?)

Confirm its leaking from the joint between heater matrix and pipes, when you look you will see where I mean, o ring will be ford parts supply. Can be a diy job but will need assistant to hold and push firm under bonnet while refitting retaining clips
