im thinking that theres a oil plug on the bottom of the motor and u unscrew it adn let the oil drain out and open up the oil dipstick and then u should also beable to take off the oil filter.....correct me if im rong???
Scrammy's right. Buy the oil change kit it will give a lot of details and tell you about priming the engine. You may want to look at the directions in the oil change kit before you buy it, that way you can decide if you would just rather have the dealer do it.
To put it simply, changing the oil on the 500s is a pain in the a$$. You drain it from two locations (the oil tank and right side of the bottom of the motor). The drain bolt on the bottom is tight because of the drive shaft. The priming part can be a little un-nerving as the future of your motor depends on it. Also, to thoroughly change it your suppose to remove a screen from the oil tank, which requires removing a banjo bolt.
