Bleeding is very easy. Let the car warm up to operating temperature and then slowly and carefully take the coolant cap off the coolant reservoir while the engine is running and it should "burp" the air out of the lines. Have some extra coolant on hand to top it off. Alternatively there is a small 10mm nut on one of the coolant lines on top of the engine that you could loosen/take off as well and it will have the same effect as taking the coolant reservoir cap off.
