There wasn't a puddle of coolant under it, but it was clearly leaking from the top.

I used the DIY that Meir posted a few years ago. Great detailed easy to follow instructions. I recommend that everyone download and save the .PDF files that he has linked here in case you ever need them. Post (5) in this thread:

While I was in there, I noticed that a previous owner had done Meir's heater flap foam repair.

Meir is the man! So helpful when I did the mixer door fix - my first “big” repair when I got the car 4 years ago.
