We would enjoy the write-up if it makes things that much easier. The instructions come from my experience with a mechanic. And actually the method works relatively quickly. I do not see how suctioning with a vacuum would do the trick. But you seem to always just throw ideas out there in my last two threads on the topic, none of which contributed anything positively to them.

If you have a faster and better way - then follow my lead and actually post the details of it and illustrate it. Otherwise... all I smell is something fishy...

Thanks to everyone else for the wonderful feedback - it is much appreciated.
