Toyota landcruiser VX 2002 4.2 turbo diesel at 102000km.
What may be the cause of clear oil dripping to the carpet of the front passenger through the cables under the gloves box?
Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like it may be coolant, does it feel greasy?If it is coolant the heater core has failed, check that and reply please

Thanks for your answer Jim.
The dripping material is just like grease. Can this be coolant?
I had my car checked at the Toyota service for this problem, but they could not find any major cause and explained that the problem is caused by the melting of the wax around the cables, which sounded me nonsense.
I am not a professional, how can I check the heater core?

For the life of me I cant picture grease anywher but anything is possible, as far as the coolant pressure test you can buy a setup or have someone do it for you, usual charge around here is anywhere from 15 -40 bucks, the heater core is in that area that you stated

If it is the coolant shouldn't the coolant level in the radiator go down? And is the coolant that much greasy?

A small leak you would not see any loss in the radiator and yes coolant is greasy but not black in color

Its just clear colorless grease not dark but looks too concentrated to be coolant but If you can not figure out any other reason I'll tell your suggestion to the toyota service and have it checked once more.
