Default 89 Civic DX Draincock

Hello i'm new to the group.
I need a little help locating ther draincock on my Radiator i've looked in
all the obvious places and dont seem to be able to find it.
It's winter now and i dont have a good enough mix of Anti-freeze in it and
its been freezing the last couple of days.....i just wanna drain my full
radiator and put the proper mixture in so it wont freeze.
Any clue where its at? a detailed description or heck even a picture would
be great

Thanks in Advance
Cliff

It's on the right side of the radiator near the bottom. Just to be clear so
there's no confusion, that's the passenger side. You'll find that it's much
more accessible if you remove the plastic guard on that side from the bottom
of the engine bay.

It's on the right side of the radiator near the bottom. Just to be clear so
there's no confusion, that's the passenger side. You'll find that it's much
more accessible if you remove the plastic guard on that side from the bottom
of the engine bay.

Hi
Hopefully your car is similar to ours and this is of use to you:

On our 95 Integra it is next to the bottom radiator hose -- draw an
imaginary line straight down from the left fan towards the bottom and
an imaginary line from the bottom radiator hose towards the middle of
the car. Where the two meet is where you find the draincock. Ours is
located under an access cover -- it is a little hidden.

The drain on ours looks like mickey ears that are a little close
together. Don't snap it while turning, because it is made of plastic
and will be a pain to get out without those mickey ears.
Regards,.
Remco
