Cooling system bleeding point

A mildly successfull day today,
The reason for losing a small amount of water has been found, the bad part is the radiator is weeping along one of the tanks, the better news is its not a water pump or headgasket or something major (though it doesnt look fun to get the radiator out)

When it comes to refilling (and topping up)
Is there a bleed vavle anywhere in the cooling system when refilling, or is it self bleeding ?
Its a 2ltr petrol

If its the same as my ZT 1.8t its just in front of the battery under the air inlet pipe, you have to push the air pipe out the way and its a small bolt head (8mm i think) attached to the top of one of the coolant pipes you have to undo the bolt to bleed. (make sure the have the heaters on full/hot when bleeding) once done if your heaters dont get hot then you still have air in the system so a repeat bleed will fix. Good luck
