Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

      What's up with it? Matrix are normally reliable, it's sometimes the joint that rusts away to the coolant pipes through the bulkhead

        Hi Jeff, you could be right, we have not removed it yet, we have had water leaking into passenger well. We have bi-passed it to allow us to use car for our local events. But will need sorting. Peter

            If you remove the passenger footwell dash cover, have a look-see at the pipes running into the side of the heater in the footwell, that's possibly where its leaking at the joint and therefore its the pipes you need to either repair or replace not the matrix. You can remove the pipes without removing the dash. Awkward job but not too bad and better than removing the dash to get the matrix out.
