Coolant change and refill question

I want to make sure that I refill the block at the correct location I believe it to be the bolt closest to the front of the car seen in the attached picture.

Sat. Morning I am going to install my new expansion tank since the current tanks hisses at me after I turn the car off.

This is what I plan to do: ( please let me know if I'm doing something wrong)

1st---drain coolant from block and rad.
2nd--remove expansion tank and install new
3rd--fill block with 4.75 liters coolant
4th--fill expansion tank with remaining 4.75 liters (distilled water)
5th--run with heater on for about 10 min. to bleed system and check for leaks.

Does this sound correct?

Many Thanks as always
