I'll second that it's a real bummer to replace the heater core OR the fan for that matter If this is coolant (sweet smell of anti-freeze) that's your likely suspect. If not, if it's rainwater, the basin that collects water and allows for fresh air to come in (right in the middle of the firewall, under the hood) can collect leaves, etc. Then it fills up with water and finally overflows into the passenger compartment. Check this out before you go tearing lots of stuff apart. "Grunff" <> wrote in message news:b0eoga$ndmki$ > S-E Jonasson wrote: > > > Saab 9000i 1990.
