It is actually rather simple, although at first start, you will think it to be impossible, due to the "hidden" under side nut that holds the reservoir fast. I just did change mine so here are the details. You will need to start by disconnecting the return hose (smaller dia) and allowing the reservoir to drain into a bottle, etc. It will drain about 1/2 of a quart, so be prepared! Next, disconnect the supply hose (larger one) and move it out of the way. You will need a #10 socket and an extension to slide in under the reservoir to find the nut that holds the bottom fast. A 1/4 drive will be best as it is thin and will fit in better. It is not necessary to remove the nut, only loosen it as the reservoir slides up and off. Remove the 2 upper screws from the top. You should now be able to remove the unit.

It's built into the power steering reservoir. To replace it you need to replace the whole reservoir. Fortunately, this is an inexpensive part... ($30).
