You will need to remove the six or so bolts that hold on the radiator cover. I will post a vid later when I get a chance to do it.
My service manual claims some models are not equipped with a drain plug, I am not sure if it is correct. If there is not drain plug just remove the cover and dump out the coolant into a pan by disconnecting the lower radiator hose. On the buick it is a bit of a reach but totally doable from top easier from bottom. Don't get cooland in the eye!! : )

Hi, if there is not a petcock or plug at the bottom of the radiator, you can just remove the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant. Many cars do not have drain plugs. Please let me know if you have more questions and thanks for using FixYa.

its tough, thats why mechanics make the big bucks. there's no easy way. One way that will help is if you take the 2 front straps off the radiator support (torque straps) and fashion a way to pull the engine forward, tilting it towards the front.
