Default Heater Core pics for 1997 XJ6?

I was reading about the heater problems and heater core issues with the XJ6? Does anybody have any pics of the heater core to flush? I only saw 2 post on heater cores in the X300 section. I can flush it this weekend but i would like some experienced people to give me some advise. So that it goes smooth....
Thanks so much
jake

Worked for me: Heater, or "I'd like to leave my rubber mallet on the pegboard this winter"

Follow the hoses that come out of the heater solenoid valve and the heater coolant pump. You will see two hoses that connect to two metal tubes that go through the firewall. To back flush the matrix, disconnect the two hoses and hook up a garden hose to the one that goes to the heater valve and a discharge hose to the other. Increase flow slowly, if no flow the core is blocked and not much you can do except remove it which is a pain

This is the actual matrix where those two pipes end up.

And there is almost tha much dissambly required on a LHD car to get to it!

Actually, you "only" need to lower the steering column, remove some modules and the brake pedal assembly, as I recall. The manuals were not modified for the LHD car, so none of that was in there!
