Re: Draining radiator in BA Falcon

Pull the plastic sheild under the front bumper off, about 8 screws, then youll see a drain fitting in the bottom of the LHS tank, be carefull its only plastic.
Dont forget the water will only drain slowly with the pressure cap on.
refill through make up tank and allow to "burp" for about 15mins or untill thermostat opens and allow water and air to leave the head. PS turn the heater on.
