You can try draining by pulling a lower hose, but that doesn't get the fluid out of the heat exchangers very well and you will flush a lot of antifreeze onto the ground, which may not be so good. If you do, dilute what goes on the ground with lots of water to reduce the toxicity for pets and animals...
