Default Want to change supercharger oil but......

I do not know how exactly to do it. I read another thread that you have to suction it out. Is this true? Also, before I do that, the plug is stripped out. Is it ok to tap a larger torx bit into it to remove it? I have had this almost 2 years and have never checked the SC oil. Never had a reason to but with cars, when you have a reason is usually too late! Any help would be great!

Yes, suctioning is the only way I can think of, unless you want to make a mess by just cracking open the whole nose drive Try an old spray bottle, but be forwarned about the smell of the used stuff
Someone else can chime in on the plug. I may be in your boat too by the looks of mine.

Yeah we had to mess mine up pretty bad to get it out and tapping in the allen key was requiered. i would suggest you go to your local dealer and get a new plug to replace the old one with, i should only run you around $3-5, and it will make life alot easier in the future.

I sucked my out with a large suringe with a ruber hose on it (to get to the bottom)


have fun... the smell isnt as bad as these guys say either that or my smell resepters have been de-sencitized by the stuff at work
