Airlock in td5 coolant system

Sometimes taking the bleed screw out and starting the engine works, put the bleed screw back in once coolant comes out with the engine still running.

Or personally i top the bottle up, remove the bleed screw, clean the bottle neck (coolant doesnt taste too nice) and put my mouth tight against it and blow, putting a finger over the expansion tube, to act like a pressure bleeder, put the bleed screw in whilst doing this once coolant is running out. Take it for a spin and get i hot, check top and bottom rad hoses are hot and top up as required. Always works, never had a problem bleeding a td5 up.
