Anyone ever change the oil on a tvs Maggie?

I need to change the oil on my tvs2300 but I can't even see the plug since it's at the back of the unit, do I have to take off the big wiper cowl piece from the vehicle to be able to access the plug? I don't understand how people are doing the oil change on these things.

You pretty much need to pull the blower. You may be able to get to the plug if you pull the cowl, but its between the pullies and you'd need a mirror to see it. Then you'll need something to pump the old fluid out and re-fill with the new.

Just thinking here, but maybe this would be the prime time to find yourself a valve of sorts so you can negotiate a change more easily the next time.

You'd just have to match the thread size, pitch, and depth with the appropriate seal. Then you could install a hose to drain and then refill.

I'm not sure if that's feasible for this, but if I were doing it that would be something I would research to determine if it was A. Feasible, and/or B. worthwhile.

Maybe it is, or maybe it isn't..... Just thinking...

Why do you need to change the oil?

According to Magnuson it doesn't require any service for at least 80,000 miles or up to 120k miles depending on how you drive the car.

Just curious.

They list two ways to do it...remove the bolt from the rear nose and use a syringe with a hose to remove as much oil as you can...measure and replace with the exact same amount plus a tiny bit more.

Or yank the blower and turn it up on it's end to let the oil drain, and replace with the required amount for your model.
