It is a plastic plug which can be turned with a 1/4" driver or ratchet, on the driver's side bottom corner of the radiator. It may be reverse threaded (ccw). The plug points toward the rear of the vehicle. It is very easy to break the plug, so use caution. Penetrating oil may help.

The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Most drain plug is make of inexpensive nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant
