From the manual linked in the sticky on how to change the coolant:

1. Stop the engine after it is fully warmed up.
2. Add detergent to the engine coolant in order to flush the cooling system, and start the engine.
3. Loosen the drain plug, remove the radiator can and drain the coolant.
4. Feed fresh water into the cooling system through the filler port of the radiator in order to wash the cooling system, and then tighten the drain plug.
5. Drain the coolant from the radiator condenser tank.
6. Install the radiator condenser tank.
CAUTION
Do not use alcohol or methanol anti-freeze or any engine coolants mixed with alcohol or methanol anti-freeze. The use of an improper anti-freeze can cause the corrosion of the aluminium components.
7. Depending upon conditions of operation, determine the amount of long life coolant, antifreeze or antirust to be added to the coolant. Recommended antifreeze: BASF Glysantin Alu Protect Premium/G30
8. Fill the cooling system with soft water through the filler port, and add long life coolant, if necessary.
9. Fill the radiator condenser tank with coolant.
10.Install the radiator condenser tank cap.
11.Recheck the engine coolant level after a road test.

Do not forget to merge from the engine and an oven.
On engines there is a drain plug.
And the oven should be left in an on-position.
When you will fill in охлаждающию a liquid do not forget to expel an air block.

outty, how'd it go? I just did mine and really had a fight.

in a nutshell, here's what I did.

- removed underside plastic trim as well as "lower lip" of the front bumper.
- opened drain on radiator (passenger side in front) to relieve pressure.
- opened radiator cap & let radiator drain
- pulled "feeder hose B" to drain. This hose is on drivers side near the transmission. it is about half the size as the regular radiator hose. coolant will come out from the metal tube part of the hose, not the rubber hose.
- get a small set of vice grips and fold & clamp the feeder hose very gently, but enough to seal the hose.
- make sure drain is closed for the radiator.
- pinch the overflow tank hose with your fingers
- (some may not like it, but make sure the radiator opening is washed off) blow into the radiator to pressurize the system. since the only opening is the metal tube below, you get a bit more coolant out. DO NOT OPEN YOUR MOUTH OR BREATH IN WHILE YOUR MOUTH IS ON THE RADIATOR.
- fill with water
:::repeat this until coolant is very diluted

now you are supposed to put your new coolant in, but that depends on amount of water remaining in the system. Service manual calls for 9.5 quarts of coolant. Every drain, I was switching out 4 quarts at a time. So I guessed on how to much concentrate to put in and will check in the morning when cooled down.
