Thumbs up

Adding to that thread...

I put a hose clamp on my turkey baster and attached a length of around 3" flex hose that I use to bleed brakes on the end to get it all out of that PS pump.

Also I throw away the old PS filter before I do any changing of the fluid, old filter won't clean it and probably just make more dirty fluid.

I run the vehicle after I drain it (after the refill of course). Repeat that a few times to flush the system... then install a new filter.

Having the return line off will help a considerable amount but you must be certain not to have the system suck in air otherwise you'll have to bleed it via jacking up the front of the car... read considerable amount more of work than needed.
I'm not a doctor, but I'll have a look.
