If you think opening the rad drain is going to get all your antifreeze out, you think wrong.

I found it after a stuggle with the big poly pannel and its tiny rusted 3,000 screws, that goes from the bumper to the frame. The drain plug is a 3/4 inch white poly nut, at the bottom side of the radiator, on the drivers side. I did not want to remove the lower hose, to cut back on messyness.
