To change the transmission or main gearcase fluid on your RANGER 1000, follow these steps:

1. Park the vehicle on a flat, level surface, ensure it is in PARK and remove the key.

2. Place a drain pan under the drain plug. Tip: Placing a rag in the bottom of the drain pan will help prevent the splashing of fluid.

3. Clean the area around the fill plug.

4. Remove the fill plug with a 8mm Allen socket, and set it aside.

5. Move under the vehicle, and clean the area around the drain plug.

6. Remove the drain plug with a 8mm Allen socket, and allow the fluid to drain completely.

7. Clean any dirt or debris from the fill and drain plugs. 

8. Inspect the O-rings on both plugs and replace, if necessary.

10. Add 41 fl oz (1200 mL) of Angle Drive Fluid to the bottom of the fill plug hole. Do not overfill. 1 quart of AGL Fluid is part number 2878068. 1 gallon of AGL Fluid is part number 2878069.
