    Hi, I am thinking of replacing the coolant on my clk 230 as this is probably long overdue. Normally an easy job on my previous cars, I was told of a drain plug on the radiator but cannot see it from on top. I assume its accessible from beneath by removing the sump cover/ guard. Checking on the web apparently the green antifreeze is the one to use. Has anybody tried this?

    It ahould be a straight forward job either using the radiator drain or by removing the bottom hose. Removing the sump cover will indeed help with access

    You need coolant suitable for aluminium engines.
