    My power steering seems to get heavier the warmer the engine gets. As I had to go to the dealer anyway, I bought a couple bottles of the recommended fluid.

    My question is, what's the best technique of draining the fluid from the system? One way (the easiest?) is to use a turkey baster to get all the fluid out of the reservoir , top up to max and repeat a couple times untill the old fluid has just about diluted away.

    Was just wondering what other ways there are.?

    Thanks in advance!

    presumably the only otherway is to disassemble the rack ?
    or possibly undo the connections to the ps cooler and steer a bit to pump it out?
