You'll have a fun time finding it. It is much easier to find if you pull the splash shield. Then look at the bottom of the radiator, up past the framing, and behind some large wire loom on the driver'* side. It does not have a petcock like previous years. It'* better described as a plastic bolt.

I watched Boost pull one out of an 00 by going at it under the driver'* side fog light.
