The petcock or drain is located on the extreme lower side of the radiator, usually the left side if your facing the front of the car. You might be able to see it from above when the hood is open or you have to go underneath the car and maybe even remove a skid plate or plastic shield. Spin carefully until fluid starts running out, you don't need to remove it totally. Sometimes you can put a hose on the end so it flows into your catchpan a lot easier.
