But on a side note, where do the tubes that are rusty in the picture lead to? Should I replace them? Click image for larger version

Those two tubes are your heater they look pretty simple to replace might need to lift the car up though seeing that they go down. The rusty pipe leads to your accumulator which is part of your A/C it's normally for those to be wet all the time it's condensation from running your A/C they rust because the condensation gets under the paint and eventually peels it right off

If its on the passenger side its the heater core. I know this because two weeks ago i have to change mine. I prey to god for your sake its not though because if it is then it will be the biggest pain in the *** to fix. Your ganna have to remove the dash. The entire dash. Its along job. If you do it yourself your looking at a couple of days of work. Since i am sure you've never replaced a heater core.And even if you have it will still take atleast 8-12 hours just because of all the stufff you have to take off and put back. If you go to a mechanic get ready to hear the money adding up. Also if you decide not to fix it might not be a problem now but for me it got worse. Soon smoke started coming out of my ac vents and i continued to smell anti freeze and then i couldnt drive a half amile without the car over heating. Things just got worse and worse
