Genuine radiators have the drain plug, most aftermarket ones don't. Drain plug is not important as removing the bottom hose is usually far easier.

I leave car on the ground and remove bottom hose from radiator to drain.

No need for ramps or stands, just park you car with one side on the rd and the other on the nature strip, then you can crawl underneath along the gutter

hmm good tip there, cept my house is on a blind corner, ppl speed round it, i never park my car on the road, it'll get rear ended, so i wouldnt want to have my head under the car while someone is rear ending it, that just wouldnt be cool
