Question radiator drain plug 99 Mercury Sable

coolant jug had hole in bottom, have replaced it, but did not have antifreeze at the time so put water in it. now i have the antifreeze but can not find the drain plug for the radiator so i can flush and then refill. i guess i need a picture, where to look, it must be hidden. please help, i don't want my car to freeze. i went ahead and put 1/2 gallon antifreeze into the coolant jug, i figured that if i ran it for a while it would go ahead and circulate.

a couple years ago, the only way to drain the rad. was to remove the lowerhose from the rad. Maybe it has changed.

Just do that
You'll get more out of the block at the same time too.

Was it still straight water in the coolant reservoir? If so easiest thing would be to just remove the Jug and dump...... then replace with no less than 70/30 mix in case some water was pulled into radiator.
Hope this is helpful to ya,
Billy

To get to the drain plug you have to remove the valance under the front bumper.

Forgot to say, You will have to take it off to get to the hose so I would use the drain plug.
