punto sx radiator drainingRadiator has two hoses. One at the top of the radiator,(The top hose) and a hose at the bottom of the radiator (The bottom hose). Wait until the engine is cool. You need to undo the expansion tank screw top (where you top up the radiator)then release the bottom hose clip (use a screw driver)which allows you to pull off the hose from the radiator expansion tank adjoining the radiator. Make sure you have a bowl underneath to catch the water.
