    some important things to do to make sure there's no air left):
    1. Lift the tank while you fill it untill a clean flow comes out through the bleed hole:
    (RAVE)Unclip the epansion tank from its mounting
    bracket, remove the expansion tank cap and
    raise the expansion tank vertically 10 cm (4 in).
    Retain the tank in this position.
    Slowly fill the system through the coolant
    expansion tank until a steady flow of coolant is
    emitted from the bleed hole.
    2. After u put back the tank refit just partially the bleed screw(as to let the coolant come out), start the engine and wait untill no bubbles are coming out(refill as to not let the coolant level below minimum if necessary
    3. Tighten well the tank's cap(that's very important)
