I have water in the driver side front & back floor board.....is that coming from my broken heter core


Asked by Feb 16, 2016 at 07:00 PM about the 1999 Volkswagen Passat 4 Dr GLS V6 Sedan

Question type: General

My car hasn't had heat for the 2 years I've owned it. When a local place was going to flush it out to see if there was a blockage, the intake part looked almost completely melted to the firewall while the outtake looked just fine.

Yes - that's the problem - Heater Core

Block it off, the two pipes going into the firewall, disconnect them. or replace the core.
