Coolant valve replacement triptronic

Need to replace a leaking Coolant Valve on my *987 Cayman S, two questions: Does the coolant system need drained prior to install? Any tips or tricks accessing the valve? The area is somewhat accessible from the top and bottom but is really tight. Trying not to reinvent the wheel if I don't have to... All help is appreciated! Thanks

If it's anything like my 01 boxster, you'll probably have to put a jack under the trans (use a block of wood to protect the bottom of the case, undo/remove the tranny mounts and lower the transmission down for access. It is really tight--impossibly tight.

I just finished installing a replacement engine--basically you can't get to anything without lowering either it or the transmission for access. If you're working on one, it gets so you can almost do it in your sleep.
