Topic: Coolant change
Car is passing 2years now, time for coolant change. Time to do some preps. First off was taking off the lower engine cover. (I'll be looking for some nylon screws next while - Home Depot) Those 10 pins are a pain to get off. Pins are supposed to be replaceable by pulling center section off. I ended up using metal scissor on them. Locating drain hole in rad was not obvious, but at least there was one - Philips star shaped on the passenger side.

On earlier cars I have done flush technique with open drain and keep pooring in on top with destilled water until water is clear. Tecnique is fine, but drain hole is too big, more fluid gets drained out compared to what can be poured through rad cap. Next time, I think I will buy a new rad drain plug and drill it up to half the diameter.

Topic: General
Replaced original passenger side wiper with "Performance Aero" wiper. There was now an aftermarked Bosch (17.3" length) wiper on the Altima, which was now worn out. The listed size at CanTire was 17". (Sidenote: The driver side was listed at 24").
The 17inch "Performance Aero" wiper seemed short from mount point to bottom of windshield. It seems to leave a triangular spot uncleaned on bottom/middle of windshield.
