Remove the rad support cover, remove the electric cooling fan and shroud, disconnect the tranny cooler lines, drain the cooling system, remove the upper and lower hoses, remove the rad brackets on top of the rad (one on each side), have someone hold the AC core out of the way and carefully slide the radiator up and out

If you take the splash guard from the bottom of the vehicle (leave the small bolt on the passenger side corner attached so that you can just rotate it out of the way-easier to reinstall this way), you'll see a white drain **** on the driver's side at the bottom of the radiator. If you disconnect the upper hose, it's not going to drain the coolant from your radiator, just the top half of the cooling system. You need to drain at the lowest point possible. You'll have to jack it up a bit to get a bucket beneath to catch the coolant.

Be sure to purchase the correct coolant/ antifreeze before starting.
Make sure the engine is cold ( has not run in atleast 2 hours ) raise the left front side of car,remove the plastic shield the runs across the whole bottom.Once removed you will see the drain nut on the drivers side. Using a 19mm wrench ( put a drain pan under car,and you should have safety glass on ) loosen the nut a couple of turns,then go to the top and remove the cap on the coolant resevoir. Finish the lower nut, when the coolant stops the fast flow, tighten the nut hand tight, then a small amount more of tightness with the wrench, ( do not over tighten or it will break and cost you an extra estimated $ 400.00 to replace the rad ).Install the plastic shield,lower car, pour a 50/50 mixture ( mix ahead of time ) of coolant and water into the tank until the level reaches and stays at the full mark, reinstall the cap and start the engine. Stay in the car and watch the temp. gauge, if it rises to the red/ hot area shut the car off and let it cool completely ( atleast 1-2 hours ) then remove the cap and top up the tank. should be good after that, but run again to make sure.

Yours is Located on the DRIVERS SIDE FACING the Engine and Just ABOVE its RUBBER RESTING MOUNT. This is Visual only after REMOVING the UNDERGAURD SHIELD, (PLASTIC) Some are MUCH more Difficult to Access than the LOWER RADIATOR HOSE, Thus Making the Radiator Hose the BETTER Choice in Draining the Cooling System. Using a LARGE DRAIN PAN I Find it EASYER to Use the Lower Hose for Draining the System.
