I also need an answer to this question, but my floorboard does not get wet. Is it clogged or is it a bad heater core? It is most likely a bad heater-core if it is antifreeze.

Why do you smell antifreeze in the cab of your Subaru?

Antifreeze is used to heat the cab of your vehicle. When you turn on your heat in your cab, it opens up a valve that allows the hot antifreeze to flow from the radiator into the heater core. If there is a leak in the rubber tubes that flow into the heater core, or if the heatercore is damaged, you will smell the antifreeze in the cab of the vehicle. You may need new hoses to the heater core and/or a new heater core.

To replace the windshield washer pump, remove the washer fluid reservoir. Remove the rubber hose on the bottom of the reservoir from the pump. Remove the plug and wiring from the pump. Remove the reservoir from the car and then remove the pump from the reservoir and from of the rubber grommet. Next, use a screwdriver to pry the grommet from the tank. Your new replacement pump will come with its own grommet. Install it into the reservoir. Use a small amount of oil to lubricate the grommet. Finally, reinstall the hose and wiring harness by reversing your previous steps from when you removed them.

Why is there antifreeze leaking from a small rubber tube on the firewall of my 1986 ford gt mustang?

That is one of the heater hoses where it connects to the heater core. The heater core is located inside the passenger side firewall. There are two heater hose connections, an inlet and an outlet. Replace the hose with the appropriate size and attach a new clamp to secure it. Before attaching clamp, make sure you clean off any debris or corrosion to ensure a secure and leak free fit. After replacing hose, be sure to refill radiator with the proper mix of antifreeze (usually 50/50) or purchase a pre-mixed solution. After filling, run engine and continuously check coolant level. Never open radiator hot! Re-checking of coolant level and opening the cap several times during a few minutes of engine run time will help bleed air out of the cooling system. Air in the cooling system can cause hot spots in the cylinder heads which can lead to overheating.
