A few points on changing your coolant:
Be very careful not to over-tighten the plastic drain bolt on the bottom of the radiator! I nearly snapped mine and the OEM replacement cost me 15 bucks and I had to wait a week for it to come in! The rubber washer helps it stay tight when it compresses so you barely need to use a wrench at all to get it tight enough.
Also, The bleed valve does not need to be opened much at all for it to allow coolant to flow through. I took it completely out and found it only has a small little hole that must be lined up perfectly before fluid can drain through. Just play around with it a little and you'll find the sweet spot lol.
There is a write-up with pictures that helped me a lot somewhere on here, I'll try and get you a link to it.
