Easiest would be to just bypass the lines going into the firewall. But doing this will result in not having a heater.

To fix it you either need to pull the whole dash out, or degas your air con and remove the evaporator to get access to the heater core and replace it.

I don't mind having no heater at all haha just until I can get it fixed to drive to mechanics or something. So how do I bypass it etc what do I do with the tubing that goes into the fire wall? When I was running the car the coolant was coming out of the part from in the dash ..

There is a line going in to the firewall and a line coming out. Remove one of those hoses.

Now there will be only one line between the motor and the firewall. Route that hose to where the one you have removed came out of the engine.

I.e. remove the heater core from that coolant circuit so it just goes back into the engine.
I fix cars.
