Power steering

to completely drain the fluid you would have to remove the return line from the rack and pinion and while the engine is running turn your steering wheel in both directions until it all comes out. I DO NOT recommend this however. What i do is get a small piece of water line tubing, like for the ice maker, and a turkey baster,yes a turkey baster, remove the bulb of the baster and insert the tube into the bottom opening leaving just a little in the baster, put the bulb back on and viola you have a siphon, you might say I'm cheap but hey,it works. now stick the tube into the pump and siphon out as much as you can. add some new fluid and run it through the system,repeat until you have fairly clean fluid. it uses a little more fluid and takes a little more time but there is zero chance of damage.

To remove transmission fluid.

If over fill transmission , you can take a turkey baster ,cut a pencil size hole in the bulb, add on a peice of 3/8 tubing about 3 ft long to the other end.Put the tubing down the fill tube.Squeeze the bulb ,then with the bulb squeezed cover the hole with your finger and release the bulb. Repeat this prosess removing your finger only long enough to sqeeze the bulb again.After doing this several times your turkey baster will be full of trany fluid,Pull your new tool 3/8 tubing and all out of fill tube and drain into an empty container.[ This will remove about a pint of fluid at a time ]

Water drips from the back upper area inside the refrigerator. Sometimes I find a small puddle of water on the floor. It is only 6years old. Model CTB1821ARW

Look at the back wall of your fridge and at the top centre you will see a small plastic tray about one and a quarter inch square, this is part of the drain system for the freezer defrost cycle, you will find that the drain tube from this tray is blocked with debris from the freezer.

To clear the blockage:
At the outside rear of the fridge you will see a rubber tube that runs down the centre and disappears under the lower section where the compressor is located, pull off the grill below the fridge section door at the front of the unit, locate and remove the water evaporation tray, locate the the end of the aformentioned rubber tube, insert the end of a water filled baster into the end of the tube and hold it securely in place with one hand and then squeeze the baster bulb with the other hand to force water up the tube, you may have to do this more than once but it should clear the blockage, if not you may have to use a short blast from a air hose.
When you replace the evaporation tray ensure that the end of the rubber drain hose is located in the tray.

Good luck!

Do you need any special tools to change front brake pads on a VW Touareg

Just the correct size basic wrenches; plus something to support the cailpers from the frame while you work on them to prevent the brake line from being stressed; plus a C-Clamp to push the caliper pistons back into the calipers so you can get the new pads installed and back onto the rotors. A lot of do-it-yourselfers fashion a coat hanger for hanging the caliper on the frame.

You'll also need some way to get brake fluid out of the master cylinder so it won't overflow when you push the pistons (with the C-Clamp) back into the calipers -- something with a squeeze bulb on a tube (something like a turkey baster) -- these "turkey-baster" type implements are available at stores such as Pep Boys.

More info, let me know.

How to clean where ice & water come out on a Hotpoint side by side. It appears to have mildew I think.

You can disconnect the water line at the bottom of the freezer door and using somthing like a turkey baster or one of those baby nose bulbs, pump a water and baking soda and bleach solution through it. Let it sit to kill the mold and rinse throughly.

Large ice block is forming behind the fruit drawer.

i assume you have a model 650 or 550. Your drain line has clogged then frozen. You need to defrost the ice then clear the drain line. I usually knock a majority of ice away then defrost the rest. Once you have defrosted the line you need to clear it. I use high pressure nitrogen to blow them out, but a turkey baster will do just fine. Fill the turkey baster with water, disconnect the drain line from the drain trough. While holding the baster into the drain line squeeze the bulb to force the water into the line. It may take a couple of tries. Reconnect the drain to the drain trough and you should be all set. If you let this go too long the insulation may be saturated and you will have to have a tech install a drain tube heater kit. If you have questions call the factory at 800-222-7820 or go online to the locator page:

Changing the final drive oil on a 2006 r 1200 gs

I use a turkey baster and about six inches of fuel line. Put the fuel line into the final drive, then squeeze the bulb of the turkey baster and then put then protruding end of the hose against the end of the baster and **** the oil out of there. The final drive only holds a pint or so. My old K bike had an allen head drain plug, I guess the newer final drives have been "upgraded".

How can I clean out the defrost drain tube on my kenmore refrigerator?

Happy Holidays and welcome to Fixya!

What I use to clear out clogged defrost drains is a turkey baster and hot water. You can get them for a few bucks at any grocery store. I have one I modified with a length of 1/4 plastic icemaker line so I can get it down into tight places. Some defrost drains are recessed so you can't get to them very well with the baster, but having the plastic line as an extension can make for quick work when clearing a defrost drain.
Take some hot water in a container like a pyrex measuring cup draw the water into the baster and then use it to melt the ice coating over the drain and then you can work your way down into the drain to the point where you can use the baster almost like a plunger of sorts. And once you get the drain unpluged, pour more hot water straight down the drain and flush it out.
The only thing to be careful of is this- if you try to use REALLY hot water, when you draw it up into the baster, it will want to shoot back out at you, so be careful!
I hope you find this suggestion useful. it always works great for me.

run a mix of 1 part lemon juice or white vinegar to 15 parts water through the machine and re-pour the same mix in the machine twice more.  then run fresh water through until it comes out clear in the pot.  Your machine needs to be de calcified you can also remove the top plastic cover that has the grate built in to it and in the back on top you will see a nut with a hole in it that the water runs through when you pour it in.  Take the bulb off of a turkey baster and put it over the nut after you have put water in the machine and use like a plunger.  squeeze the bulb several times to push through any loose calcium that might have been building up.  make sure that the bulb is under water put in the machine when you do this.
