My '97 E420 has a bad coolant leak directly under the dash leaking onto the ground. The inside of the car is not wet. Anyone have any idea of where the leak may be coming from and how to fix it?

given the age of the car, first thing I'd do is check all the hoses going between the duovalve and the firewall. With any luck it will simply be a hose that finally has gone to the bad side after 16 years.

Rubber hoses in a 16 year old car is a good place to start. Since it is behind the radiator you might be OK there but don't rule that out. Fluids have a habit of flowing along other parts and dripping in another place.
