Icon5 antifreeze/collant refill/bleed

Hello to all...
I have a 97 base prelude. It's out of antifreeze. I need to refill but how do I bleed it? Better yet, how is the whole procedure done? This is my first time ever doing this so I'd rather ask than to mess up.

I'd be very thankful for any help.

Update: took a closer look and it turned out that one of the hoses had a rupture in it. After taking a look in the manual, I was able to cut the hose, bleed and refill antifreeze/coolant. My prelude is doin' just fine.

Well you dont even have to bleed your prelude. If you just keep squeezing the upper rad hose and keep topping it up, you will be fine. Just start your car once you think you have a good amount in and let it run to operating temperature and then shut it off. Top up the coolant and then your done.
