2000 Buick Century Radiator Flush Kit

I own a 2000 buick century with an automatic transmission. I recently bought this prestone radiator flush kit. The instructions say to locate and cut one of the heater hoses. I'm not really sure how to locate these. Could someone please assist?

Right center of firewall, Below the blower housing. This may be a very tight "Squeeze" , and possibly not worth the effort. Most heater hoses nowadays are metal "Pipes" with rubber Sectioned in at the "Flex Points".

Thanks for the time saved. How would I go about flushing the radiator effectively? I just replaced the hanus thermostat from hell, should I now take that back out before flushing?

In theory....Yeah , you really should.....but......

How many miles are on the vehicle?.. You did use "DEXCOOL" coolant didnt you? (The ORANGE STUFF)

Although it isnt the preferred method....A rag and a garden hose in the upper rad hose will work in a pinch. Remove the lower hose from the rad first.
