Freeze plug locations

Hi guys,
I have a small leak on the back of my engine (lower right side of the cylinder head) Can anyone supply me with a diagram of the freeze plug locations on the 1999 230K engine?
Much appreciated

Don't know about the freeze plugs but there is a drain plug on the right side of the engine,

See figure 8

Possibly # 23 on this diagram but it's front left.

I replaced the small freeze plug at the back of the cylinder head. There is 2 there (I took a photo see attached)
The other freeze plugs are along the side of the engine block
