Hi there,

This a messy job, to do it properly you need to remove the low pressure return line into the reservoir, plug the reservoir end and fit an extension hose to the low pressure hose so that you can get it into a suitable container to collect the flushed oil, now, with a helper, start the engine and let it idle, you will have to keep adding oil to the system as it flushes into the container, when it runs clean, shut off re attach hose to reservoir and check correct level, run and check for leaks.

Can you please draw a paper to say where is the lower pressure return line.
Thanks
