Do you mean the radiator cap ? -- most radiator caps need to be depressed before turning loose for the first part of the term - then release the compression on the cap and turn normally - if you are trying to drain - there is usually a drain plug near the bottom ( a bolt )

SOURCE: how do i remove the

There should be two bolts holding your tank on. One is near the handlebars and the other should be between the tank and the seat. You may need to remove your seat to get to that bolt. You will need to remove your fuel line from the tank also.

SOURCE: I'm trying to change the

I have only changed the belts on my GL1000's. The manual says to remove the radiator but I have found that it is not necessary. With a little bit of knuckle scrapping and some care when removing the four long bolts that hold on the belt covers, you can slide both the bolts and the covers out and replace the belts underneath. If there is just not quite enough clearance you may be able to unbolt the radiator and move it forward just enough to accomplish this with out having to drain it. The pictures you have may be from a 1000, an 1100, or a 1200. The fact is that the timing belts are changed and adjusted the same way on all three models. Just take care when removing the cover mount bolts that you do not damage the radiator. If you are careful you should be able to replace the belts with out all the extra work of draining and removing the radiator. Dealers short cut the radiator removal but charge you for the time anyway. Good Riding.

Location of horn on 2012 Hyundai tucson


The Horn is under the hood just remove the screws holding the radiator cover, I don't think it's necessary to remove all of them, just the drivers side, enough to be able to remove the headlight assembly. Then there's 3 bolts holding the headlight assembly, on top 1-10mm, & 1-12mm they are right on top, & quite visible, next underneath there is another 10mm bolt about the middle, in sideways, (check pix) just remove these, and the headlight elect plug (push down on the back of the plug clip to release) now, just sort of jostle the headlight back, & forward (but forward a bit more) while lifting it, and pulling back the loose radiator cover to clear, and it should come right out

How to take radiator off


Not too difficult, a little time consuming. First, take off your negative connection on battery. Drain radiator from bottom plug or drain. You will have to remove the cooling fan assemblies: unplug electrical connectors, and unbolt assemblies from top of radiator or support brackets. Bottom of assemblies may have bolts also, or may just fit in slots. Now remove the top and bottom radiator hoses- loosen clamps, and work hoses back and forth till they're free, then pull off. Also, remove little hose to your coolant overflow tank from radiator filler neck. Check if all electrical and other connections are free. Radiator is bolted by two (or more) upper bolts to radiator support, Don't think there are any on bottom- radiator should pull up and out now.

I just want to know where the radiator drain plug is located


Follow the bottom hose to the base of the radiator. If there's no drain petcock there (most newer vehicles don't have one) you'll need to carefully remove that lower hose from the radiator in order to drain it.

I'm trying to get the bottom pulley off to get to bottom timing cover & can not get the bolt out, any suggestions?


There's only two ways to get it off...1) impact wrench, 2) you can try and use a strap wrench wrapped around the pulley to hold it in place while you remove the center bolt. Be sure and get a high quality strap wrench or the strap will just break while your trying to break the bolt loose. If you do a lot of diy mechanic work I would highly recommend an impact wrench. If you don't have a large enough air compressor you can get a cordless model that will do the job just as good.
