Here is a pic of the green cap.

I am pretty sure it is, but I want to double check.

Is the the green cap the air bleeder bc that's what I have too or is that something else?

unless the Z is different than my G, that is not the air bleeder. the cap for the bleeder has a philips head screwdriver indention and is further back to the firewall. sorry i dont have any pics but i had to use it when i installed the lower temp Z thermostat on my G sedan. that picture is the general area but in order to see it, the angle would have to be taken more looking straight down towards the firewall.

OK I found the bleeder cap but now my air bag lite is FLASHING. I saw some electrical wires right under the bleeder and I believe a lot of coolant may have got the wires wet when it dripped out of the cap. Is there any sensors or wires around that area that connects with the air bag? I was leaning on the passenger fenders a lot to bleed the air out so will that cause the lite to stay on? Any way to reset it?

Question, when going through this process of bleeding the air using the air bleeder near the firewall, should you have the heater on while going through this process? TIA!
