power steering fluid change 300E


this is probably a stupid question...

How does one change power steering fluid on a 124? I have the MB CD's and is several places there're references to bleeding/flushing the ps fluid; however, it is not clear to me how to actually extract the fluid - syphon it off? Do I have to unscrew the return line?

It is also stated rather forcefully in the manual not to let air in the system. How's that accomplished - can I drain all the fluid or I have to stop at some point to prevent the air from going in...

The manual also talks about raising the front end and turning the wheel left/right all the way to completely drain the ps system. With or without the fluid? New fluid or old one?

Please advise and thanks in advance.
