Take the Lower Hose off at the motor and that should be enough.....that should drain motor and radiator...

To put antifreeze back in,since your belt broke, put hose back on pull hose of thermostat,remove thermostat housing,take out thermostat and fill motor from top with antifreeze. good to go...motor fills up with antifreeze.
