where are the drain cocks in a 190e?

Hi there
I want to change the coolant on my 190 e 2.6 ltr. I read that the drain cocks need be opened to release all of the coolant. Unfortunately the book does not tell me where they are located. Does someone know?

thx

Toward the bottom of the radiator.

Which makes sense, given how little good they'd do had they been at the top of the radiator.

I thought this guy had a top mount radiator drain plug. If he isn't doing a coolant change, why'd he park his car like this?
