hi m8
do the following

remove the filler cap on expansion tank

then under the ka on the radiator (bottom feft) there is the plug
you need to remove to drain the system. it looks like a plug you would have on a car battery

refill with a mix of 50%50% or there abouts.
i usually do a 60%40 mix 40 being antifreez or a little less as we don't get the real cold here.
