For best results you should remove it from the car to flush it. Let the water flow through it for about 5 mins, then put the hosepipe (with a good bit of water pressure) in the other pipes in the rad as far as you can get it and reverse flush it. Don't forget to turn the radiator at different angles with water flowing through it to dislodge silt/sludge/rust because if you dont do it thoroughly, when the rad gets blocked at a later date by ch**st will you know it. Also dont forget to flush the rad pipes, block and matrix. Hope this helps - Alex.

I remove mine and position it over a drain, then I put the hosepipe in through the bottom hose stub and flush for quite a long time giving it a good shake a few times, that gets the drinking chocolate out.
