You should be fine for the spring and summer, and fall...

In late fall, you could change it to the 30W before the temps get too cold...
If you really don't run it that much during the cold season... you'll be fine with the 80W-90!

I'm kind of the "By the Book" kinda guy... It won't hurt anything by using the 80W-90,
But, it's suggested in the manual to use 30 SAE...

How offten should this be changed?

It is as simple as pop a drain plug and then refill?

Once a year... depending how much you use your cart!

Being that I only use my cart for maybe 6 months of the year,
and a few times during the winter... I change mine every 2 years...
of coarse, it's all depending on the amount of use, and conditions!

Some have NEVER changed they're transaxle oil... use your own judgement,
But, you should get a service manual to keep up your maintenance!

and... Yes... It's that simple!

Ok, so what is the trick to getting the oil back in.

I poped out the drain plug and the fill plug is just a few inchs up still on the side, right? But danm if I had the right funnel to get it back in.

I ended jacking up the one side and used a 1/4 tube to fill it back up.

What do you guys use?

Rear end oil should be checked yearly, there is no heat building on it, so it should never need draining unless water or debris are introduced.
