2006 R500 heater-A/C leakage

Coolant loss, some fluid accumulating vicinity battery.
Unpleasant odor, seems more prominent w/ heat than A/C,
but who knows?

Suspect rodent activity.

Seen some YouTube videos re: heater core & A/C core replacement on other models MBZ.
Looks like real bear. remove entire instrument cluster & steering wheel, e.g.

Question: are there any rubber hoses (rodent targets) in passenger compartment,
or are cores all metal--looks like maybe inside big black box. Acknowledge could
have non-rodent inspired leak from disintegrated metal parts....

Anybody been in there, can report back from terra incognita?
