Are you having problems with your box? or are you just changing fluid because you want to?
It is impossible to drain all the fluid as the torque converter and valve chest will not drain so to get clean fluid through the system you will need to drain and refill at least three times with a drive between changes.

Have you read the procedure for checking level
https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/reference-library/galaxy-mk1-mk2-automatic-transmission-fluid-level-check/msg31/#msg31

I used Mercon V fully synthetic when I changed mine, then recently had the box overhauled by a local gearbox specialist, he used Dexron 3.

The total capacity is 7 litres but when you drain if the level was correct to start with you should get 3 to 3.5 litres out.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
