    5. Measure the distance however you choose between panels to put headlight back into the same place.

    6. Remove the upper plastic screw and pull headlight forward to pop out the retainer clip (Be careful of the small black plastic washer). Then remove the bottom two screws (Be careful of the springs)

    [attachment=57830]

    19. Remove the 4 bolts on the bottom of the skid plate using a 9mm socket and remove the skid plate

    23. Place drain pan under crankcase and remove the crankcase drain plug using a 6mm Allen wrench

    25. Remove the knock sensor connector and pull up on the white part of the idle speed adjuster to remove it
    [attachment=57837]

    26. Remove the oil filter (Make sure the gasket is not stuck to the block)

    27. Take a picture of what you have just done
    [attachment=57838][attachment=57839]

    28. Reverse the process, making sure all hoses, connectors, bolts, and screws are back in the right spots. Make sure all your tools made it out as well

    29. Fill up the oil tank with 2.5 liters of oil

    30. Start the engine and warm it up. Shut it off and check the oil level. Fill as necessary

    This process is for changing the filter along with changing the oil. If you aren't changing the filter, just follow the steps in the owners manual. It is a much simpler process.

    Yes, changing the oil filter on this is a major pain in the butt. If you don't feel confident in yourself, I'd suggest taking it to the dealer. Technically, you don't need to change the oil filter again for 12,000 miles, so you may never have to do this again.

    It looks daunting, but it really isn't that bad. It just takes a lot of time. I went slow to make sure I was doing everything right. The next time I do this it will go much faster.

    Excellant job with pictures and explaining it. I may not own a Phazer, but I appreciate a good "how too" when I see it.

    Thanks guys. I'm glad it is putting it to good use. I'll be doing my end of the season oil change pretty soon, so I'll probably refer back to my own How-to for a quick refresher.

    Well I finally got over my cold so I could do the first oil change. It took me all day to change oil and clean everything. It helps if you have a long set of allen wrenches or a #5 bit and exstensions to get to the oil pump. I am not sure what the trick is to get oil filter off, but it took me a long time just to get something to get a grip on it to break it looose!

    Geez...why didn't the engineers think to make that a little easier to do? Do they have any plans to make the process slightly easier than disassembling your sled? I like the idea of the 4 strokes but that looks like alot to do to me...

    why bother warming up the sled ...by the time you got to the filter and drain plug it would be cold already....
