Radiator Flush

I need to flush my radiator but I cannot find the drain plug. The online owners manual says that there are two but I can't really tell. Has anyone done this before and if so tell me a little about it.

I have an 03 so not sure if yours will be the same.

I have a rubber splash pad right under the radiator that either has to be removed or pushed up out of the way. It's held on by plastic snaps. Now once you remove that then (at least on mine) there is a phillps plug right under the radiator. Take a screw driver and undo it.


Now if you have none of this you can always pull off the the lower hose. Maybe someone replaced the radiator before you bought it (if you bought it used).
