    i pretty much think i got this right
    you open the screw on the bottom of the pump and let it pour out then you on screw the hoses and push the plow side to side with the plow on the truckand screw everything back together and fill it up am i right

    or if some has an easier way or video let me know thanks.

    thats right for the most part. Put a 2x4 under the plow, makes life a lot easier. Also I would recommed flushing the system. You can use clean fluid, by putting each angle hose into a jug of clean fluid, and cycle it in and out a few times.

    Probable doesnt hurt to remove the motor and clean or replace the filter since you have the fluid already out.

    Op is the same way I change mine except I then run the plow through all functions several times after changing the fluid then change the fluid a 2nd time. This is how the dealer stated they did it when I took it to them so I just followed their instructions.

    That seems like it is the right way to change the fluid out of the plow.
