The first thing is to get the front of the four-wheeler off of the ground with the floor jack.
This is the flat safe spot under the front axle where the jack needs to be centered.
This is what the it looks like when it is off of the ground and ready to drain the oil.
The oil pan is to catch all of the oil when it is drained.
The creeper is to roll around on the floor and to go under the four-wheeler.
Roll under and find the drain plug to see what size wrench is needed to take the plug out.
This is the correct size to take the drain plug out on this four-wheeler 17mm
Take out the plug and let the oil drain into the pan below.
Lower the four-wheeler back down so the oil all runs out of the engine.
Its going to take a little bit for all of the oil to drain out so by taking off the cap while it is draining it reduce time for the oil change.
This is the correct size socket to take the bolts out of the oil filter cap. 5/16
This is what it looks like when the cover is off of the oil filter and the filter is out, and in the center of it is the little spring that can't get lost.
