T660 -04 how to change oil?

Hi Guys,

I'm a newbie when it comes to snowmobiles. Now before the snow comes here in Sweden I would like to change Oil och oilfilter. But I have no idea where to start? I can't locate the filter nor the drain plug. Could you perhaps help?

Easy,
You need about 3 liters of Mobil 0w40 synthetic oil. New oil filter.
There is a plug on the belly pan of the sled. Pull that off.
Then there is a oil drain plug on the oil pan of the sled(look through the hole in the belly pan)
Pull the oil plug and drain old oil.
If you have a turbo, take off the intercooler tube, and then put rags or papertowel below where the oil filter sits.
Spin off the oil filter (this might be real hard and some have resorted to driving a screwdriver through the filter to get it off)
After all has drained..
Put in oil pan plug.
Put in belly pan plug.
Spin on new filter, put a little oil on gasket first.
Replace intercooler tube.
Then refil from the top of the motor with 2.5L of oil.
Checking dipstick as you fill.
Then start motor for a second or two, to fill filter.
Top off the oil and recheck the dipstick until it reaches the full line.
It really is very easy and after you do it once, you will be an expert at it.

dukie nailed it.

The only thing I would add is some of the hole in the belly pan don't match up perfectly with the drain plug. The end result is a plug that's not easy to get out and the potential for some of the draining oil to end up in the belly pan.

I use my Pella extractor and it makes it a quick and clean process.

It's also handy to suck the oil out of the chain case to cut down on that mess as well.
