To just remove the coolant from the radiator, there is a plug or valve at the bottom of the radiator on either the left or right side. Loosen this and drain the coolant into a container---NEVER ON THE GROUND-IT IS DANGEROUS TO ANIMALS AND IS TOXIC.

Tighten the valve when empty and refill. Run the vehicle to get it to operating temperature and keep filling until all of the air is out of the system.
