    Hi, the water header tank of my '81 Mondial 8 has rusted through. I've bought a replacement from those nice people at Eurospares in London, England. I now want to change the old for the new. Unfortunately the factory manual doesn't give me any details as to draining down the coolant system and refilling it.

    Can anyone give a mechanical novice a step by step guide to draining down (where do I open the system to drain off the coolant etc) and refilling (type of anti-freeze I should use and quantity of coolant to refill with etc.

    Many thanks

    Thanks very much Philip, you can't get more fool proof than your excellent set of instructions. I'll let you know how I get on.

    would the process be the same for a mondial 3.2?

    from the parts diagram for the 3.2, it looks like there is a drain bolt on the bottom of the radiator, driver's side. wouldn't it be easier to simply drain from there, and the engine block, rather than detach hoses?

    thanks in advance.
