Anything on the radiator is difficult to get to. I usually remove the small hose that goes from the overflow bottle into the lower radiator hose to drain the cooling system. If you look at the passanger side of the car in front of the wheel down at the bottom you will see where the lower rad hose goes into the radiator there is a tee where the small hose from the overflow tank comes in, remove the pinch clamp and pull the hose off, have a big pan ready because it will come out fast! Good luck. P.S. Please dont do this with the engine hot!

    I'm trying to find the location of the radiator drain plug on a 1996 chrysler sebring


    I think you will have to lower the splash shield under the front bumper and it should be on the very bottom of the radiator.

    If not, you can loosen the lower hose at the radiator and drain it that way.

    Were is the drain plug for the radiator on a 1999 Tarus located?


    Most radiators don't have drain plugs anymore. You just remove the lower hose. Loosen the clamp and twist back and forth until it breaks free.

    Where is the drain plug located on the 2002 Lancer?


    Probably under the splash shield, it's an off-white colored plug, but you can remove the lower radiator hose to drain the coolant as well.
