Oddly enough coolant leaks often seem to happen this time of year for me. I have one now. I've done the heater matrix on my car but it's a phase 1 and obviously they're slightly different.

Scuttle off and undo all bolts then steering wheel and clocks out,
Keep pulling at dash to highlight where it's fastened .
It's a days work mate, the only sound advice I can give you is- just go for it!!
It seams a bit daunting but when you get into it it's a doddle! And at least it's not covered in oil!!
