Just did this process after a transmission & t-case rebuild to bleed my car:
-get the car up on ramps & jack stands, put it in NEUTRAL, apply parking brake
-loosen bleeder valve, and attach a clear hose if you can (to see air bubbles in the fluid)
-with car IN NEUTRAL and gas pedal floored, start the car and spin the steering wheel back and forth (past 90 degrees each direction) as you let your foot off the gas (triggers activation of clutch packs from pump, from what I understand)
-make sure reservoir still has plenty of ATF in it so it never goes empty
-repeat until you're bleeding clean red fluid with no air bubbles
-hope your pump isn't toast, as they seem to be the weakest point on this car
