On my 380SE, you just unscrew the thumbscrew that holds the cover on, suck out enough fluid to get to the filter, lift the filter out, suck out the rest of the fluid, and then replace the filter and fill with ATF. You'll want to replace the cover gasket while you are there if it hasn't been touched in a while. Mine was cracked when I got to it the first time. You won't get all the fluid out, because it is still in the steering gear and lines. You might want to try sucking out the fluid a second time after the new stuff has had a chance to circulate around a bit and mix with the old dirty stuff. That way, you get a greater ratio of clean, fresh fluid in the entire system.
