So let me get this straight for the turkey Bastet method...
1) buy two bottles of fluid
2) use baster to suck out dirty fluid into a water bottle or something
3) fill reservoir up with same amt of fluid that was taken out
4) turn wheel back and forth a bunch of times
5) take out fluid with baster and refill with new fluid
6) turn wheel back and forth
7) drain fluid out again
8) replace with new fluid
9) repeat turning wheel a third time
10) drain and replace fluid again and then be done?

Where do we install the new reservoir with filter in the above step?

You don't. Two different methods.

A bit late to this party but I just ran across this post today and also saw a video from BavAuto where the reservoir is changed out.

Here it is:
