The drain plug is located in the middle of the bottom of the radiator. It's a deep hole (about 4 or 5 cm deep) and the plug has a cross head - it's so deep in, you just have to 'feel' your way with your screwdriver.

Don't forget to open the radiator cover at the top so it lets air in and will help the fluid drain out! ;-)

It is quite easy to find but if you're stuck, I'll take a photo the next time I'm under the car.

Cheers
