Coolant bleeding on V6

I am just about to change the thermostat on my 156 V6, and was wondering is there any need to bleed the coolant after fitting it. Do I just fill the expansion tank normally then run the car until the stat opens while keeping an eye on the levels or is there another method. On my 12v 3 litre 164 there was a bleed screw on top of the thermostat housing, but there isn't one on the 24V engine..

Re: Coolant bleeding on V6

fill via the expansion tank, keep the engine running with the heater on full giving the rad pipes a gentle squeeze...keep an eye on the level for the next couple of days and top up where necessary
