Question CVT Fluid Change - Drain/Fill vs. Pump out

Hi -

I'm new here, I just picked up an '09 Versa SL (1.8L/CVT). I'm looking to replace the CVT fluid. I've already picked up the OEM Nissan CVT fluid, my only question is which method are people using.

I saw a YouTube video of a Sentra where someone did a drain/fill. My setup looks identical to his (same dipstick, same drain plug), so I think this should work.

I looked it up in the Factory Service Manual and they recommend disconnecting the CVT fluid cooler hose and running the engine at idle while adding new fluid until the new fluid comes out the hose.

Any thoughts as to which method is best?
