Planning on replacing the radiator hoses on my EP3, just wanted a guide on how to bleed the radiator properly and any tips on making sure no air gets trapped in the system.

Easy mate. Once you've done all you need to and all your hoses are connected back on then do this.

Fill your radiator to the top and put the cap on only to the first stop.

Fill your expansion tank too.

Turn on your engine and set your interior heater to hot so it flows round the matrix.

Let the cooling fan kick in twice then turn the engine off and let it cool.

All the air will escape out because the radiator cap is on the first click.

Once fully cooled top up the radiator and expansion tank if needed.

Screw both caps on fully then check in a couple of days.
