Siphon it out with a siphon kit or use a small diameter Clear rubber hose to siphon it out. Best to put the car on ramps to be able to get under the car. Have the hose long enough to stick all the way to the bottom of the PS pump and hang all the way down beneath the car. Have a bucket with you and suck on the tube until you see fluid coming down the tube ( The is why you get clear rubber hose so you dont get a mouth full of fluid) and set it in the bucket. get out from under the car and make sure the hose is still at the bottom of the PS pump. once it stops draining fill with new fluid
