How to change the oil on a 2024 Polaris RZR XP 1000.YouTube

Polaris has done us all a favor and produced a helpful video on how to change the oil on a 2024 Polaris RZR XP 1000. The clip below goes through the procedure from start to finish, and covers all the required fluids and tools. Like most side-by-sides, changing the oil in a RZR XP isn’t quite as simple as popping the hood. You’ll need to do a fair bit of disassembly to get to all the necessary bits and pieces, including removing the rear cargo tray, seats, and rear access panel. That sounds like a lot, but the components are made to be removed for service, and it all comes out pretty quickly. It’s also a good excuse to clean all those nooks and crannies you can’t typically access with the pressure washer.

From there, the work is pretty straightforward. Clean up around the oil cap, drain the oil through an access hole in the skid plate, and remove the oil filter. Then it’s as simple as reinstalling the drain plug, tightening it to 12 lb.-ft., installing the new oil filter, and refilling the engine with 2.5 quarts of PS-4 5w-50 oil. Replace the bits you took off to access everything and you’re back on the trail. Check out the full how-to video below.
