Anti Freeze/Radiator

This may be simple for some of you. But is there a "how to" on change the anti freeze or radiator fluid?
I am just not sure if there is a plug on the radiator to just let all the fluid go out of or if there is something special I have to do.

Thanks in advance for the help.

There is a white plug on the passenger side of the radiator facing the windshield, either unscrew that or disconnect the lower radiator hose to drain coolant. Also, open the overflow container to aid in drainage. If you use the plug method, you should probably have an extra o-ring on hand or a new plug itself, the o-rings tend to break. While your at it check hoses and clamps for wear and tear, replace if necessary. Hook everything back up, open bleeder valve and attach a clear hose to it. Pour coolant into overfill until you get a steady stream of coolant out of the hose, top off overflow. I think it takes about 12 qts.

Decent instructions, but I would refill it with water and run the engine, dump it again, once or twice to get all the old crap out, then refill it and test it.
