    Riviera 1966 changing heating radiator

    Hi,

    I've sometimes a big leak of water, on the right of the accelerator. It comes from the air duck. I'm pretty sure that the radiator has a leak.
    What is strange, is that the leak is not all times. I can drive 200 miles without a leak, and the next day drive 2 miles and get a glass of water on the foot...

    Well, my question is what is the best way to check where does come the leak? Is that from the engine ? Or from the inside of the car?

    Usually a heater leak smells of sweet anti-freeze.

    It does. So the question is, how to check, or change the radiator?

    Heater core has a leak. Need to fix it or buy a new one.
    Do you have any clue to find it for sale on the internet with shipping to France?
