The advantage of pulling the fender liner is that it gives easy access
to the fill hose connection and just makes it easier to see what is
going on  for the person doing it for the first time. I just wrapped up
the hyd lines in rags and a baggy to keep from making a mess. Just keep
to hoses above the level of the fluid in the reservoir and when closing
the hood make sure the hoses are off the intake manifold (ouch).
