remove expansion cap,remove the engine/transmission under-shield.Undo retaining clips and disconnect right-hand intercooler hose.With container under bottom radiator hose,release clip and carefully ease the hose from the stub.Good luck.

If the rad doesn't have a plastic drain plug , take off/ loosen bottom hose .Quite a few people have had this problem , also on other models ,i.e from Ford forum

" Its funny you should ask this question, but I could not find the drain plug on mine either! I spent 1/2 an hour looking for it, before I decided to just disconnect the bottom hose "

Sounds like you disconnected the inlet and outlet hoses to the intercooler,should be the one above them.Good luck.

since summer traveling requires a fresh radiator that can help your vehicle's engine beat the warmth. Deposit accumulation can clog the air conditioning and lead to motor overheating that leaves you dead on the highway. Knowing the way to flush your radiator and replace the antifreeze before that hot summer trip will conserve you money. So with regard to your problem, just look if there's a disconnection.
