Question about 1999 Hyundai Accent
When you open the hood, right in front, just behind the grille, there should be two long flat metal "boxes". One of them is the airconditioning tank, the other is the radiator. Usually the radiator is the thicker of the two, and should have a metal cap. The aircon tank doesn't.
To drain the Radiator, open the cap, then look for the cooloing hose nearest to the ground, these are usually black hoses about 2 inches in diameter, attached to the engine block by round silver hose clamps, usually the screw type.
Unscrew, or release the clamp of the lowest hose and pull it off, you can use a flat screwdriver to pry it off if it's tight. Now simply let the coolant drain out. Remember to re-attach the hose and secure it tightly before refilling! Hope that helps!

Hi your radiator is located at the front of the engine bay if you open your bonnet it is the long black thing made of steel that runs along the front pretty much from headlight to headlight quite simply undo the radiator cap (silver round thing on top of radiator) BUT DO NOT OPEN THIS IF ENGINE IS HOT the engine must be cold other wise you will end up with hot water all over you. after undoing cap jack car up and put on jack stands. get under the car and there should eithr be a drain tap if not simply undo the hose clamp around bottom radiator hose and remove hose. It can sometimes be a bit of a pain to get off just use flat blade screwdriver. After all water/coolant is drained re-attach hose and fill radiator. Start engine and leave running until water drops in radiator this means the thermostat is open top up coolant and replace radiator cap. Godd luck if you get stuck ask again no prob there.
