What's the easiest way to change the power steering fluid?

I know it's not a service item, but at 316,000 miles I've had my money's worth out of the old fluid and feel like treating the car to some fresh stuff.

Merci Mike. Will just try to get as much as I can out of the LP side and replace that.

I have read about the rubbing point of the aircon and power steering pipes and have cable tied two rubber strips to them for protection.

Mike, Take the bottom cooler pipe connector off let it drain, lock to lock the car several times (manually), blow into the reservoir that will get the majority out, replace the connector, top up the system lock to lock (manually) then start the engine, top up, then repeat the procedure.

Hi Jason I left the bumper on and just had the undertray off. Bought a 1 litre bottle and that was more than enough if I remember correctly.
