Get a flush/fill *T* connection for the heater hose. You can fill the system with a garden hose through it till it is at the correct level without letting air in. You can also bleed the cooling system from the cap on the *T.*

Procedure for removing air from cooling system (gurgling noise):-
1) Remove the fuse that controls radiator cooling fan (to prevent it from cutting in)
2) Run engine until temp guage goes into the red (ideally use a thermometer to accurately guage engine temp) Fan would normally cut in at around 94-95 degrees centigrade - when engine reaches approx 99 degrees switch off and allow to completely cool down then remove cap and top up to required level.
3) Refit fuse

Go for it if you want a cracked head..
Personally I dont.
Park on a hill nose up, do what the beauregaardhooligan said except I left my car on the hill.. Air bubbles goto the highest point which would be the raidator and hten I filled the rad up while it was on the hill.
This stoped the gurgling

Thanks GD, I would'nt make it up !,
Like I say you do have to watch the temp - in the workshop we used the select monitor to watch the temp and switch it off at around 99 degrees C.
