I had a bleeder screw on my 1972 Saab. It was so convenient.

In case you haven't already come across it, we've got a great FAQ sort of thread called Common problems, need your help! that everybody ought to become familiar with. It will point you to some of the best posts on how to deal with a lot of the more common situations you might encounter. And also look at the stickies up at the top of each forum's listings for answers to many of the most significant aspects of owning a Forester (or maintaining your mother's!).

Those are at the bottom, for draining. Bleed bolt would be at the top, deep into the system somewhere, to allow air pockets to escape when filling.

Can you describe where the drain plugs are? I an going to change my coolant soon, any tips would be appreciated! Does anyone know the refill capacity?
