Coolant bleeding

First post so Hello everybody..

Just drained and flushed the cooling system including new thermostat on my 2006 1.8 tdci ford focus. It says in the manual that the beel screw is at the top of the engine on the ego cooling hose. I have looked and looked and still cannot find it. The picture in the Haynes manual makes it look like its right next to the brake fluid reservoir. Need the car back on the road tomorrow so any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

That picture is definitely NOT of a MK2 1.8 TDCI Focus engine

Paul is correct that the Haynes manual shows that as a 1.8 engine but I agree that it doesn't look right.

I'm pretty sure they are showing the 2.0 tbh.

If you are worried about air in the system just fill the system to minimum level and run with the reservoir cap off and cabin heater to full / fan on setting 1 so all the water feeds are circulating.

Keep running and topping up the tank to max level as necessary until the reservoir return pipes warm up thus showing the water has cycled through the whole system.

Once everything has cycled properly and any air has burped out into the expansion tank ensure the the tank is filled to max level and you're done.
