Does this also apply to year 2000 models? K4M I think ... the Haynes only gives the location of a "bleed screw" on the thermostat (which works more like a sump bolt - instead of being hollow with a little hole thru the bore halfway up, so you can control it easily by turning like a radiator key, it just blocks the channel it sits in, so nothing happens until it's completely out; you then get covered in loads of boiling hot coolant; and can't easily stop the flow without putting the lid tightly back on the expansion tank). It also makes mention of the mysterious bleed screw on the heater hoses at the bulkhead, but doesn't show them (and having followed these up to the bulkhead, I can't find anything - plus they're lower than the stat itself).
Currently in tahrey's garage:
Honda CG125, Scott Voltage MX5, dirt, lots of random bottles and tools, porktastic Clio III DCi, dodgy shelves...
