    best bet is to drop off the bottom radiator hose when the coolant is cold...you'll need to remove the undertray first, but then you'll have loads of access...drain the coolant to this level.. refit the hose and clip and then refill with red longlife coolant, refit the undertray..turn the heater selector to hot and bleed the system..recheck the level with the engine idling..

    when you bleed it - does the air come out of the header tank?
