front diff oil fill plug mod

my new 2019 sportsman 570 SP , 2 weeks old is due for first fluids change. the front diff fill plug
needed a little modifying IMHO. i cut a little slice of the bottom plastic with a zip cut and this pic tells the rest of the story.

from your original post it seems like u said you cut the plastic up to get access to the drain bolt ,
the service / owners manual has pics is all i was saying. !

i have not looked at the service manual. it was obvious u had to remove the winch to fill the front diff.
now i don,t have to.
