If you're looking for the drain port, check out this youtube video by RichPin06a.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0VdFRDdgvA

If you have long arms, you might be able to reach it through the passenger's side wheelwell vs. getting underneath it.

Let us know what you find!

Radiator drain plug? Block freeze plug? Evaporator drain?

OU812, if you meant the ac condensate drain port (not a drain plug), hholbein gave you a link to a richpin video. The condensation water from the interior evaporator drains out thru a duck valve - a soft rubber valve allowing water to drain but prevent insects from crawling in. Its in the middle of the firewall, down by the four lines - two are ac, two are coolant lines for heat. The drain valve is as shown in the video. Whether you can reach it thru a wheel well depends on how long your arms are and if you can reach it. Everyone reaches it from below the engine. Can you jack the car up and use a jack stand for backup safety?
