Power Steering fluid change??

97 D90, trying to renew the power steering fluid.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?
I've searched the site with no luck, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Pull the hoses on the pump (or loosen the banjo bolts), gravity will drain the whole system (mostly), then refill. Mobile one makes synthetic, if you're interested. When you refill, be sure to crank the steering hard left & right to the stops several times. This will purge the air from the system.

At idle open bleed screw on PS box close screw refill. Powerwash the rest of the day.


This is the messiest way to do this. Pull a line of the box as mentioned above. You can also use your wife's baster vacuum a little from the res. Refill and repeat.
