Not really a 'dumb' question...just not too obvious. You could try to siphon it out with a small hose, making sure the catch container stays below the level of tank. This allows you to save most of the fluid. Or pull the hose off the pump, replace with another hose to drain it into a container (this will take a while). Another option might be to leave the tank full, remove the electrical connections, the mounting bolt and the heat shield, then remove the washer hose from the pump, cover the pump outlet with a finger and lift the tank, pump and all, out then dump the fluid into a container of your choice...
