Sometimes the drain valves are hard to reach because of plastic fan shrouds, unlike older cars were one could easily open up the valve. A trick I used this fall on my 96 1500, was to use a Jack Rabbit hand pump from the radiator cap main fill access, and then once the tube was filled, hold it over a shallow bucket that is lower than the bottom of the radiator.... and the old antifreeze will be siphened out. make sure the tube is at the bottom of the inside of the radiator, so you don't get air in the line and stop the process. It's not as good as a flush but you will get new antifreeze into your system.
Good luck.

below the radiator you will see a hose on the passenger side. Yes, you will have to remove the lower tray to access this. The lower hose attached to the radiator has a plastic drain plug attached to the bottom of the hose. Unscrew with a slotted scewdriver counterclock wise to drain the radiator. It will drain faster if you remove the cap from the expansion tank on the drivers side.

Where is the radiator drain on the 2002 chevrolet blazer?

It is located on the passenger side of the radiator near the bottom edgeon the engine side you might have a small black rubber hose coming of of the area of the drain I think this is supposed to make collection of the coolant easier. The drain is plastic and should look kind of like a wing nut. You also get the best access to it from inside the wheel well by moving out of your way a rubber skirt. Its still not easy there is not much room. I have read others have just removed the lower hose to drain the system. I know that makes a real mess.
