Did mine the other day. Forgot to take pictures, but looked same color as Basset Box's. There is a black insert, so fluid looked darker than it really was. It was hard turning steering wheel back and forth while trying to remove fluid in system. Was worried, when I replaced fluid, pump made "squeeling" noise and lots of bubbling in fluid reservoir:shock:. I kept turning steering wheel back and forth, turned off engine and waited around 5 min. Bubbling and noise disappeared. Boy was I relieved, I thought I did something wrong:grin:.
