Update: I found the plug but when I turned it to open it nothing came out! I have no idea what I'm doing here apparently.

Easiest way is to pull bottom hose and remove cap. Those drains are junk.

I was hoping to avoid all that... Looks like that's what I'll have to do.

The XJ radiator drain plug is plastic, and prone to breakage.

Using the lower radiator hose will be faster and much less likely to break anything.



Be nice to poor old Jose.
