To change the front gearcase fluid on your RANGER XD 1500, follow these steps:

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

2. If needed, remove the front tire on the passenger’s side for ease of access and support the vehicle securely with a jackstand.

3. Place a drain pan underneath the front gearcase drain plug. Tip: Placing a rag in the bottom of the drain pan will help prevent the splashing of fluid.

4. Clean the area around the fill plug in the passenger side front wheel well. 

5. Remove the front gearcase fill plug with a 8mm Allen socket and set aside.

6. Clean the area around the drain plug.

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

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

9. Inspect the O-rings on both plugs looking for any burrs and nicks. Replace if necessary. New fill plug is part number 2203739. New drain plug is part number 2203738.

10. Reinstall the drain plug, and torque to 11 ft-lbs (15 Nm).

11. Fill the gearcase through the fill plug hole until it reaches the bottom threads and begins to spill out. The fluid capacity is 10.1 to 11.8 oz (300-350 mL).

12. Reinstall the gearcase fill plug, and torque to 8-10 ft-lbs (11-13.6 Nm).

13. Clean any residual fluid off the vehicle and inspect for leaks.

14. Dispose of the used fluid properly at your local recycling center.
