You can see it through the grill or behind the passenger side headlamp surround. Jeep Cherokee radiator drain plugs are plastic and very fragile. You should simply remove the lower radiator hose instead of using the drain plug.

AnswerRemove front headlight trim and grill, passenger side, lower side of radiator, is a hollow hex drain plug Answeryes the drain is on the lower left but its easier to remove the air cleaner box and pull off the lower hose going to the radiator to drain it.

On the lower END of the radiator, passenger (right) side. However, this info is NOT useful, as it is well nigh impossible to access with tools or fingers. You can see it (with a mirror), but that's it! Better plan on removing the lower hose to drain. The Jeep Cherokee radiator drain plug is plastic and very fragile. You should remove the lower radiator hose to drain the cooling system.

The drain plug is on the bottom of the tank, drivers side but hard to see. But, if you cant find it, just disconnect the lower radiator hose and let it drain from there, that would do it, and its faster.
