    Hi all,

    I am trying to change my coolant but can't for the life of me find the coolant drain, I have removed the grille/fog light cover from the passenger side, lifted the rubber flap but there's nothing that looks remotely like a drain screw?

    I have a 1.9 diesel passat 2001 on a 51 plate avb engine.

    Can I use Prestone antifreeze or do I need the G12?

    Many thanks for all your help.

    Thank you, hopefully I can find the red drain plug now to get the old coolant out, anyone knows how this is done on a 2001 UK model please?

    You'll get more help if you tell us the engine code, and you could just remove the bottom hose to drain
