They are rite you have to take out the dash because it behind the glove box.
you also can do a quick fix so you dont damage your floor board. take an plug the line that goes into the heater.

By heater core i take it you mean matrix? if so the only way to access this is to remove most of the dashboard and hence the reason that not many people try this one themselves.

Is it water from outside leaking in, or engine coolant from a bad heater core? If it's antifreeze, you'll likely need a new heater core. Hopefully, your '98 wont need the dash removed to change heater cores like on a lot of older models-time-consuming tedious job.

Coolant leaking onto passenger floor well after using fan and heater.1999 Toyota Landcruiser, 6cyl petrol. Does this suggest a ruptured heater core? Will this mean getting in behind the dash?

yes and yes. sorry.
as you are probably aware of it is difficult to get to heater cores. if you are able to take it to someone that can do a pressure test on the cooling system they should be able to tell you for sure where the leak is coming from

Without knowing what is wrong. Have the guy pay to fix it. that way, no matter what it costs, its not your problem. $3000 is way to much for that old car, find something better.

Coolant is leaking into the passenger side of car interior 1997 DeVille happens when AC is turned on,it is not overheating it is not leaking from anywhere visible under the hood

i bet it is your heater coil located under the dash of the car. when it gets cold if its not fixed it will fog up your windows.
