Don't quote me, but I think there's a drain plug at one of the sides of the radiator. You will probaby have to take off the cover on the bottom of the front bumper.

The black covering that goes from the bumper to the engine bay... that is what covers the radiator. If you take off the cover on the bottom that I talked about earlier, you should find it.

Umm, the radiator drain is UNDER the car.

remove the black plastic cowling under the car right behind the bumper. There is a white plastic plug on the driver's side bottom of the radiator. That is the drain.

make sure not to drain the antifreeze into the road, it is bad for environment and is actually very sweet, your neighborhood pets will lapo it upa nd die.

Dispose of at a hazardous waste facility, not in your trash can

Whats so bad abotu the neighborhood cats drinking a little anti-freeze? :D

Make sure that your bucket/drainpan is big enough. There will be quite a bit of coolant coming out of the radiator.
