Have a 2003 Baja that is leaking coolant between the engine and firewall. When underneath, you can see anti-freeze on the inner cv joint boot. Any ideas where the leak may be coming from?

Replacing the heater core is not an easy fix. The entire dash has to be pulled. The last one I did took 5 hours just to pull the dash.

Could be a leaking headgasket. The leaking coolant would be swept back towards the firewall.
Check the lower rear portion of the headgasket to see if it is wet to the touch.

Headgasket and headgasket running off bottom Ds lower rear corner of head seam. If you can see it leaking means coolant is finding its way into oil This can cause damage to engine
