    Do you want to just change the fluid or actually get in there?

    rear end

    All you need is a suction pump, or just some rubber tubing and penetrating oil or break free. Spray the bolt with break-free and let it work overnight. Remove bolt, stick your suction gun in and suck out all the fluid. Use the old mouth suction technique with rubber tubing if you don't have a suction gun. Fill back up untill fluid runs out hole. Put the bolt back in. Drink cold beer.
