Default Need to replaced brake fluid. Need help

I want to drain all the fluid from the master cylinder but there is a strainer at the opening. How do you guys drain the fluid? Does that plastic strainer comes off?

How about draining it through the nipple on the brakes?

Jest's idea is better but that strainer should just pull out. Just grab it around the sides with some needle nose. Be carefull not to get brake fluid everywhere as it will remove the paint from your vehicle.

yea, bleed them starting with the end farthest away from the mastercylender. so start with the passenger rear. hook a tube to the bleeder after you loosen it, drain it in to a bottle by pumping the brakes.
