You can drain a lot of it by removing the hoses, but you might need to bleed it and that requires a special tool. I'd get as much out as I could with a turkey baster, fill it back up and run it for a few days, and repeat a few times.

un bolt, turn upside down, jiggle and turn the steering wheel a few times
