Red face coolant fluid leak in cabin Jimny

Jimny, 7 years old. For the third time coolant fluid leaks into the cabin from the dashboard under the passenger seat. The first time I had an expensive repair, the garage took down the complete dashboard. Then it happened again within a few months, I had to pay the parts but not the work. And now a year later, the same happened again: a green poodle of cooling fluid appeared on the passenger mat.
Any advise? The garage is the Suzuki official dealer of the area.

Whoa!



But seriously, you have no choice but to have the heater core re-entertained.

Did they repair the old one or replace it?

Well that is certainly an odd situation.

The only two ideas I have as to early core demise is a lack of proper coolant (no corrosion inhibitors) OR a significant over-pressurization from an incorrect or malfunctioning radiator cap.

or a leak from one of the hose connections maybe?
