Default Replacing Windshield Washer Fluid

I live in Canada (eh).

Winter is coming so I want to change the summer windshield washer fluid to the winter grade. I just had an oil change and they topped it off a few weeks ago with the summer grade.

What's the quickest way to drain the summer grade fluid out so I can put the winter one? I was thinking of just holding down the spray nozzle until it's finished... lol.

2007 GS350 AWD if that makes a difference.

could try using a turkey baster or some sort of suction sort of thing to save and reuse the fluid for next time.

Thanks! Picked up a cheap siphon the other day so it should do the trick

Yep!

I bought mine at Canadian Tire (in Canada) but it's pretty much identical to this one: http://www.sears.com/unique-bargains...6&blockType=G6

You could have just pulled the hose off the washer reservoir to drain it.
