SOURCE: coolant/radiator flush
No, its not hard to do but keep in mind if youre just going to drain the rad and refill it there is still a lot of coolant in the engine that wont be replaced........the drain plug will be somewhere near the bottom of the radiator,most will be a flat tab that you should be able to turn without any tools....remember lefty loosey righty tighty

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)

SOURCE: how to Flushing radiator coolant
Hi, first you should get a drain pan to catch the draining coolant, then purchase either premixed coolant or straight coolant and cut it in half with water. then it is usually easiest to take off the lower radiator hose from the radiator and allow all of the coolant to drain out (but make sure that the engine is cool so you do not get scalded). then put the radiator hose back on and remove the radiator cap and start pouring in the new coolant. when it gets to the top of the radiator you can start the car and let it start warming up. be sure you still have the drain pan under the car because you will most likely have some spillage. when the car warms up to operating temperature you will need to keep gradually adding coolant as the air exits the system. This may take a half an hour or so. also make sure that you fill the overflow tank to the cold mark so you do not get any air back into the system. good luck
