Yes. It's slightly different but close enough. You just need to use a bit of foam in places to fit. 

 

This is the one I used

But there is an all metal upgrade version aswell.

removed the dashboard, found drips on bottom corners of the heater assembly box.  Hose connections were dry.  Dampness on carpet underneath and smells like coolant so concluded that the heater matrix is leaking! 😡 

 

Could it be where the plastic mouldings are bonded to the metal core?

 

anyways, ordering the all metal heater matrix as suggested, thanks.  Begun removing the heater assembly, reckon I will have to dis-assemble and re-assemble in situ.

The all metal matrix is slightly bigger than the original, I made a bracket to hold it in place.  Fitted 5 years ago after the original failed at the O ring/coupling; no significant leak but a need to top up the coolant about once a month.

Glad you found it before I had to suggest a horny other half.
