To drain the coolant, the radiator drain will need to be opened. It's located on the passenger's side lower section of the radiator. Best access is from under the vehicle. The lower air deflector will need to first be removed. There are retainers around it's perimeter. Once removed, remove the radiator cap and then open the radiator drain.
