Where is the bleed bolt for radiator?

Auto:
1995 Honda Accord LX 4 Door
it is a 2.2

I have drained my radiator and am about to refill my radiator but can't find the bleed bolt. Anyone know where it is or how to help me find it? It's driving me crazy.

Thanks.
Charlie

There may not be a bleed bolt on that car. I have never seen a bleed bolt on a Honda of any kind. Just fill and run with the heat wide open and then keep filling till it is full and the heat is blowing hot.
Hope this is helpful to ya,
Billy

i thought the same thing since i couldn't find it.. the chilton book on the car claims there is one so it made me even more confused.. if there was one is the only location near the thermostat or could it be located elsewhere? I just want to make sure I get it done right now instead of continually screwing around with it.

thanks for the reply!

If there is one, which I still highly doubt, it can be any number of places. The thermostat housing is the most likely location, but look anywhere there is a coolant line attached to the engine. It WILL be high on the engine and that is how it functions, again if there is such an animal on this car.

Don't know about an Accord but the Civic has one where the upper hose connects to the housing, it's on the housing and is 10mm.
