Pulling out heater stuff from under Dash

Hi guys,

Is it possible to pull all the heater gubbins out from under the dash in the passenger footwell without pulling the whole dash out?

I believe I have found my phantom leak and need to get into the top corner of the dash to investigate but the heater is blocking my view t the bulkhead.

You can defiantly remove the blower motor, you maybe able to get the ducting out but you won't (and shouldn't have to) get the actual heater box out from behind the consol.

Have you checked under the plastic trim that wipers pass through ( skuttle panel ) to see if the water drains are blocked ? Water entering through blower vent due to blocked drains is very common.

Yeah over the years I have gone through every single seam, nook and cranny and resealed. Through some instructions that Honda published to fix a leak that the Civic EG had I have found the leak.

There is a U shape bit of metal that acts as a drain for the water that enters the scuttle. This is hidden behind an outer skin and has limited access. I have started another thread asking the best way to tackle this seam.

Once I have got this sorted I will be writing up a how to guide. After smoking a cigar and drinking a fine glass of port whilst feeling exceptionally proud lol.
