Well I was draining my radiator yesterday and had it draining after opening the pet****. I felt I did it correct but for.some reason took out the pet**** all the way. When I tried to put it back it was at an angle (no room to go straight) I broke it. I am getting a new one today. I'm trying to take out the radiator to get a better shot at putting the pet**** in. Does anyone have any tips? I'm so pissed at myself, I was right but went to far.
Don't use them, they're plastic with an O-ring seal. Many times you cannot get proper access when the rad is in and may not re seal likely due to sediment or poor design.
Pulling the lower rad hose where convinent (engine or rad end) is the best way if you dumping all the fluid. If just trying to drop the level for T-stat replacement (not sure where they are on these though and there are two). Siphone some from the rad cap hole. I hope this helps but when you get it sealed leave it alone. I suspect you won't try that again.
