Default Routine draining of water from fuel/water separator..CRD Eng

Any CRD owners figured out how to drain the water from the fuel/water separator on a 2.8L CRD engine ? I looked through the owner's manual to no avail, short of identifying where the fuel filter is located (already knew that). I own a 2003 Dodge RAM 2500 Crew Cab 4x4 equipped with the 24V H/O Cummins Turbo Diesel, and draining of the water from the fuel filter housing is a snap (I do it at least every other fill-up or so...I average a tad over 600 miles per tank). There's no big yellow lever (like on the CTD) that I can easily identify for draining.

Haven't done it yet, but ...

DRAINING WATER IN FUEL
WARNING: STORE FUEL IN APPROVED AND PROPERLY
MARKED CONTAINERS. WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES
AND ADEQUATE PROTECTIVE CLOTHING
WHEN SERVICING FUEL SYSTEM.
(1) Disconnect the negative battery cable.
(2) Disconnect the water in fuel (WIF) wiring harness
connector located under the fuel filter (Fig. 8).
(3) Connect a drain hose to the WIF sensor.
(4) Place the other end of the drain hose in a
approved and properly marked container.
(5) Open the bleed screw on top of the fuel filter
housing.
(6) Loosen the WIF sensor on the bottom of the
fuel filter to begin draining.
(7) Allow the filter to drain into the container until
fuel is visible.
(8) Tighten the WIF sensor, remove the drain hose
and clean any spillage.
(9) Tighten the bleeder screw on top of the fuel filter
housing.

Thanks so much for the help. Now that I know the procedure, I'll have an idea about what things to look for to do the process. The bleeder screw is easily visible from the top....kinda looks like a bleeder screw on a brake caliper.
Thanks again for your help....I'll post my experiences whenever I git-r-done.
