Default Changing oil in supercharger

The manual for my '98 SSEi says to check the oil in the supercharger every 38,000 miles. Never says to change it. I've seen other posts that say change it every 50,000 miles. Any opinions, and if it should be changed, what'* the procedure?

To aid you from having to get syringes..

An old spray bottle works great. I save all mine for this type of thing. Stick the spray tube into the nosedrive and pump away until it'* dry.. pumping right into the bottle from the sprayer.. then put sprayer back together and dispose of the old oil.

Thanks for the info. I've printed the Willwren procedure and put in my notebook.

A little suggestion.. write in the spray bottle suggestion.. it'* easier to find and have on hand than syringe.. quicker.. cheaper..
