I've changed the fluid in two 07 Focus, those were simple. Siphon off the fluid in the resvoir, remove the return line cap the resvoir and flush the system.

I tried searching for tips on flushing the Zetec setup, most everything i found is for the Duratec cars, the Zetecs use a resevoir with a single line to the pump.

Is there an easy way to flush the power steering in the Zetec powered cars? Or am i using my fluid pump and empting the resevoir and refilling and driving then repeating evers 50 or so miles til the fluid is bright red again?

The fluid is currently really dark almost brown in color.

Zetec is no different, it is IMPOSSIBLE for the system to work using only one line, they have a pressure and return line as well. Look closer.

Boy do i feel dumb now, at first glance all i saw was the big line, looked closer and felt around there it was the return line. Here i was thinking the return line connected at the pump some how.
