Help GTV heater matrix

I may need to replace my heater matrix - usual leak problem - in my lovely 1996 GTV. I am having a few problems getting a replacement. Does anyone know if I have to get a GVT matrix or will a matrix from any other car fit?
grateful for any help

Do you have a leak from the left side of the matrix, affecting the passenger footwell?

If so this is a typical matrix tap problem. The tap sits to the left casing of the matrix and tends to fracture over time due to the heater pipe being pressed against the cover which hides all this plumbing. The tap itself is only 15 from the dealer and on the Phase 1 cars is relatively easy to replace.

If this isn't the problem and it's the matrix body itself then this is a fairly big job. The dash needs to come out and you need to use a genuine GTV matrix to replace it.

Hope that helps.

I'm breaking a GTV and I already have the dash out of the car. If you need the matrix let me know.
