Hi.

If it's got a sweetish smell it's got antifreeze in it and is coming from your heater matrix. Have a look at the grommits on bulkhead + the door/window rubber seals.

Was thinking long the lines of heater matrix leaking to notice any drop of your coolant level normally more known when car parked overnight seems to leak like mad then when I done some in the past??
