A coolant flush takes around one hour to do properly, as you'll need to drain all the old fluid and fully flush the radiator before you can refill it with the new coolant. Edit:- I'd be the first to acknowledge that some people will just be ploughing straight in and opening up these coolant systems and then refilling them with as much coolant as possible - and getting away with it, but why bother to take that risk if you are asking questions on how it is done. Our experts will remove and safely dispose of your old coolant, replacing it with manufacturer approved Comma coolant to provide maximum protection against corrosion, overheating and freezing. Another Edit:- then for cars that were filled up with G13 at the factory and have not got a "silicate top up pouch/capsule" in the reservoir - what is expected to be going on in these systems, I'd think that there there will be "early" protection depletion and so corrosion will kick in, another reason why I'm considering replacing what will be G13 in the cooling system of my wife's late July/early August build 2015 VW Polo, for the G12evo I seem to have left over from changing the coolant in my early February 2011 build S4 to G12evo.

Collecting the old coolant, I bought a new plastic bucket from Screwfix, I think that it is maybe a 12 or 14 litre one which makes it quite low in height, it was seriously cheap as was the plastic funnel I bought with it for decanting the old coolant into the 5 litre containers - really mainly to quantify the volume and to hold onto it in case I ended up with serious leaks after having taken the pipes apart, ie to use until everything was water tight if it started off not being - really belt and braces approach I suppose - too much time on my hands as I'm retired!Place the drain pan or bucket beneath the plug and open the drain, allowing the coolant to drain into the pan, removing.
