Basically it'* like this, you'll need first off about 4-8L of P/* Fluid & a very large container to hold the waste fluid. Jack up the car to allow access under it. Remove the P/* Pump RETURN hose from the back of the P/* Pump (rubber hose & hose clamped on).
Allow this hose to reach your waste container. Remove the P/* Pump cap. Now this next part is a 2 person job. Have someone else in the car with the engine running & turning the steering wheel all the way to both sides (lock-to-lock)
slowly, while you add the new P/* Fluid to the pump. Doing it this way will not allow any air to enter the P/* System. After the first 4L'* have been added, check to see if the waste fluid is running clearer now than before (looks like the new fluid is coming out).
If so, re-attach the Return hose & top up as need be. if still dirty looking, continue with the next 4L & then check again.
**NOTE: make sure while the car is jacked up (& on jack stands) that the front wheels have access to move (turn).**
