Hello chums I'm going to change the thermostat and header tank on my V6
tomorrow, I'm thinking of removing the rad bottom hose to drain the fluid.
When I refill the system does it need bled? If so where are the bleed points.
Many thanks in advance.

no need to take pipe of the rad, opening the stat will drain enough fluid to replace it & the tank too. its a self bleed system but its always best to keep an eye on it for a while in case of air locks
