2007 800 X2 Front Differential Fluid Change Procedure

I couldn't find what I was looking for when trying to change my own fluids on my 2007 800 x2. Tools I used for front diff. 3/8 Flex head ratchet, 3’’ extension, and a 5/16 Allen socket, With all 3 of those together it’s easy to get at the fill plug.

Funnel with hose, you can measure the amount you need and watch it go in.


The fill plug is located on the left side. right under the radiator hose, its really hard to see. Just lay on the ground in front of the left front tire and you will see it. if your on your knees you will not see it.

The drain plug is on the bottom of the diff with a 5/16 Allen, it has a magnet on it. Be sure to clean it off

the fill plus is a lot different than the drain plug.
Be sure to clean both plugs before you return them. I included some pictures on how I did it and turned out to be pretty easy
