Draining Coolant

Post by Frenchy » Mon Sep 17, 2018 3:18 pm

Is it just a case of loosening the radiator drain plug or is there another drain plug anywhere?

Just the one I believe, quicker to take off the bottom hose

Thanks for the info gents. I've plenty of time so I'll leave the hose alone.Spanish weather is good for bodywork,but not so kind for rubber.

Hose is a bitch to get back on, as it's got the twist in it, you'll need to make sure it goes back on at the perfect angle as you can't really twist once it's on the rad

Can’t say I’ve ever had issues getting them back on to be fair. Bit of ptfe spray let’s you get everything back together and moved to your liking before tightening it all up.
