alright I managed to change it.. here is what I did.. Pumped out all the AT fluid i could out of the bottle, Reservoir has 2 hoses.. one going towards the pump, one from the return line.. I took out the reservour from inside engine bay, its held by a spring clip, was able to twist hoses so they were still attached without spilling liquid when taking it out. I grabbed empty milk bottle and undid the return line hose. That hose went into the milk bottle, I about 1foot rubber hose same size as I took off and connected one end to bottle and bent the other one, this just to make sure no liquid spills out when I'll be filling the reservoir. For this part u'll need 2nd set of hands, so invite your buddy for few beers and tell him to help ya. Before you start make sure you have at least 3 quarts of oil.. I know it only takes .7qt according to manual but hey I wanted to flush everything out to be sure. Ok so we are ready, return hose in milk bottle catching the old oil, and your other buddy ready to fill the oil into reservoir. Go ahead start the car, then tell your buddy to keep pouring the oil into reservour so it don't go dry while your turing wheels left the to the end and back to the right.. Leave engine at idle, after you go thru about 2 quarts your done. Shut engine off, and reverse connect everything back and top off the reservour to the full marks.. start up the car and do same thing, turn wheels from left to right and check the fluid level, if all good then your all done.. Enjoy..
