    Found it!

    I've had a slight coolant leak for a while now, so small that I almost fooled myself that I was imagining it. I am a Stag owner, after all.

    Today, while I have the dash out for other work, I decided to investigate the heater valve and check it for smooth operation, finding that it doesn't move at all. What I did find though was a slight drip from behind the valve, somewhere inside the heater. There's a slight green stain to the valve body so it's been happening for a while. Oh well, at least it's easy to pull the heater while I have the dash out.

    And there's plenty of time till we go back to work isn't there?

    I suppose this could be the reason for the coolant leak?

      May not have been 'then' but no disputing that it is 'now'.
      A good test for your soldering skills.
