Looks like you been ignored !

DO you just want to add antifreeze or renew it?

If you are adding, as your post suggests, then you need to remove some coolant to make room for it. Easiest way, is to remove a hose, allow some coolant to drain away, reconnect hose and secure.

Then add antifreeze, start engine, undo bleed valves on the hoses (2 i think ) until air stops hissing out and tighten them. Turn off engine, allow to cool, check level and repeat as necessary to achieve level required.

On the diesel and i think XU petrol engines you remove a plug around the back of the engine to drain the block and open a tap on the radiator.
To refill remove the threaded 3/4" plug on the thermostat housing and the bleed valve on heater hose to allow the air to escape.

Only use anti freeze mixed with distilled water or preferably a ready mixed long life coolant such as comma coldstream.

Probably very correct info, but is quite possible the plug may be seized or will break when attacked. For easiest practicality anfd to avoid potential expensive and awkkard problems; I would advise removing the hose as the best method. The worst you should require is anew hose clip !

1 word of caution though, be careful if pulling a hose of a plastic connection. Trty to break the seal with a blunt tool before twisting it hard etc. Or preferably choose the end that is attached to metal (engine end)

A 1997 306 might have the twisty hose connections fitted, invest in a new O ring for each one you plan to undo before starting work if it does.

I was walking round Halfords and noticed a little anti freeze tester for a couple of quid it works superbly tested it out on a glass of water and added anti freeze it also worked on the car by the way.
