Yes, Victek, the Elantra is one of THE simplest vehicles to change the radiator fluid I have ever seen. The "petcock" is a red plastic bolt at the bottom of the radiator. Once you look, it is hard to miss.
Make sure the car is cold, open up the radiator cap before you open it, and let it pour. While it is draining, remove the coolant recovery bottle, drain, clean, replace and refill it.
If only other vehicles were that easy.
