Flushing the power steering fluid is on my list of things I want to do now that the weather is once again conducive to non-hibernation activities. I was out there this morning looking to see what is involved, and have read the how-to with pics from the OS. I see tons of people do this themselves. My question is are you people contortionists or are you waiting for the circus to be in town and having some quadruple jointed bendy freak reach the hose on the bottom of the pump? If I reach over the pump and around I can just barely touch the hose clamp, so I imagine with some work I could get it off but I know I would make a hellacious mess, especially when it comes time to reconnect it, not to mention dumping an entire reservoir full of Royal Purple while trying to get it on there. Is there some better way to reach the bottom of the pump that i am missing?
