well not sure why he recommeded that you change the ps fluid.
But its a fairly easy job.... what you have to do is siphon as much
fluid out of the p/s resevior as possible and then fill to the proper
level with new p/s fluid. Check around in the local auto parts
stores... for a "siphon pump" for this purpose... many people use
them for rear end dope and also p/s fluid.
You also could disconnet one of the p/s hoses at the sector and let
the fluid drain that way. You never really get all the fluid out.
I'ts not a bad idea to change the p/s fluid every few years......

A good siphon hose is an outboard motor fuel line with the primer ball on
it. It is a one way system and it works great for stuff like that. I use
mine for getting the oil out of the jugs and into my transmission when it
The easiest way is to pull the return hose off the pump and let it drain.
The return hose is the small regular looking hose. Then put the hose back on
and refill. You wont get it all out but close enough. If you are really
worried about it you could drain, refill, run it and crank the wheel back
and forth, drain again, refill again. Fluid is cheap so what the hell.
