I have a 1995 E38 that has "smoke" coming through the vents, both front and rear(behind front seats). There is coolant on the ground at the back of the engine, and the floor at the rear right passenger feet is wet. Is there somewhere I can find some good isntructions with pictures? I found one that said you didn't need to remove that whole console, but it had no pics. I need one for removing the rear control also. Thanks a lot.

Basically you have to remove the lower half of the dash, its a big pain as you will see in the link below once you have removed the lower part of the dash you will have access to the core:

Although I wouldn't remove the steering column, I don't think there is need of this...

I am, but smoke is coming out of the front vents, and I see coolant on the ground behind the right front wheel. Under the back of the wheel well. Alsom there is coolant on the floor behind the right front passenger seat.
