Default question about maintenance

i have a Ph1 1.6 8v saxo and i really want to change the powersteering and transmission fluid.

For powersteering i bought Kroon Oil ATF DEXRON II-D 1 Litre
For the gearbox i bought Kroon Oil Gearlube RPC 75w/80w 2x1 Litre
are these the right ones and are these enough?

How do i flush my powersteering fluid? it is pretty dark and it is on its minimum line.

My gearbox/drife shaft makes a sound when my wheel is turned.
https://youtu.be/T8iaMNIuH2I This sound is only produced when the wheel is turned

Gearbox is correct,power steering I got Dexron type ATF.
Easier to just replace the driveshaft,it's 26£ from eBay.
Remove the hoses/pump to drain the old fluid.

disconnect the hoses from the powersteering pump and turn the steering lock to lock a few times should flush most of it out and you'll probably have to take the pump itself off and empty it out, good time to give it a clean up anyway.

Fixed it by replacing the left drive shaft, also replaced the (bearring suppose which is in the opening of the axle on the gearbox) in the gearbox.
