On a 2004, I recall you can go from underneath as well. Remove splash shield and I think the intercooler pipe. Good to clean up the petcock first and spray some WD40 on it to lube it up. I find they are stubborn to get out so you have to proceed handsomely. I would have at least one spare petcock available as PLAN B. Not sure if they are easier to get out hot or cold. I would be tempted to suction it out the top if there was a way with shade tree tools.
