First you must disconect the smaller hoses, then the one on the top left then top right. When you disconect the small hoses expect fluid to leak out, so get a large container. Same for the larger hoses. Then put the emergency brake on (just in case) and start the car, but make sure there is something under the engine [preferably towards the front] to catch the fluid. Be sure to rev the engine a couple times. After about 30 seconds shut the car off. Now use a hose and spray it into the radiator where the cap is located. Finally re-connect all the hoses and re-fill the car of engine coolant and if its front wheel drive you will also need trans fluid.

What Nissan model is compatible with a 1996 Infiniti G20?

Previous answer wrong. It is not a re-clad Sentra. It is the Nissan Primera, which is a completely different car. They might share the same SR20DE engine, but the Sentra doesn't have the Primera's Multi-Link Front Suspension. With proper tires, one can handle like it's on rails when pushed into hard corners, the other will under-steer and wallow. The Primera has more mass, which translates into less jittery handling.
