Coolant Flush - Draining Coolant

Hello,

I'm trying to flush my coolant, but am having trouble locating the place to drain from. I did find a hose with a clamp that looks easily removable, but I'm not confident that it's actually running coolant - I'd hate to drain the wrong fluid.

I have a 2008 Mazda 6 4 cylinder.

Anybody able to provide an exact description of where to drain the coolant from? Or even better, happen to have a picture?

Thanks!

Alex
