Default Super Charger Oil change?

I have obtained a 2000 bonneville ssei and i know for a fact that the oil in the super charger needs changed but the nut is stripped and im not sure how else to change the oil other than completly removing the snout. i could do with some pointers or suggestions.

You will need to get a easyout, that will get the plug out.

Easy Out...Screw Extractor...

You'll need an extension to get in there with the Easy Out. You'll also need a new hex plug wich you can get at any hardware store that has an automotive nut bin.

Fuel filter replacement, coolant check, check the belts and hoses, air filter, rotate the tires, check the brakes, transmission filter change and new fluid.
