Default Power Steering Pump installation

Hello,

I have a 2007 town and country v6 3.3 and have 87k miles on it. I want to replace the power steering pump but wasn't sure about a couple of things. I recently replaced the power steering fluid and wasn't sure on how to bleed out the system so that i don't make a mess with the fluid. How would i bleed out the power steering system?? Do i need to use some type of sealant on the hoses that connect to the power steering pump? I have to remove the air intake unit to get to the pump but thats not a problem.

Can i take off the return hose from the power steering reservoir, turn on the car and drain the system from there?? I haven't looked under car to see where the high pressure line goes from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion.
