Re: 1.8 bottom end water plug

I think on the 147 you have to remove the lower hose to the radiator.

This is just a clip that you can operate with your fingers, there's a push button on the top and bottom. The only thing is once you are using all your hands to hold in the clips you need a third one to pull it away from the rad.

This is where the girlfriend comes in!

No idea if it's the same on a 156 but quite possible.

Don't think many cars have plugs to drain the block.
