cooling problem after changing coolant.

Hi!

I'm an owner of punto mk1 95 sx75

I changed my cooling fluid at last week to parflau 50/50.
I started to bleed my cooling system in two places.
1. Left up corner of the radiator. There is a bleed Nipple there.
2. At the back of the engine. On one of the two hoses (one of the hoses has a little bleed nipple).

I'm right?
Dose my bleeding process is right?
Or i forgot another bleed nipple somewhere else ?


Best Regards L.A
