What is the process for supercharger oil service and its interval? I've had my in-warranty work done at dealer, but I don't recall them ever doing this.

I don’t believe LR ever specified a service interval for this. I think its considered by Land Rover to be a sealed system that does not need an oil change (like the transmission). Many people do it when they do the coolant crossovers (usually around 60-80K) because it’s easier with the supercharger off, but I haven’t seen anything published about a regular service interval.

It's easy enough with it on. Just use a syringe and suck out the old oil. then replace. Call superchargers online for a kit and filling instructions. cheap. plus, they are sometimes low on oil or the oil is broken down by 60k.

Have a 2016 rr sport with 55k miles. I have been reading about control arm bushings leaking oil. mine has a leak but my mechanic says it is leaking coolant. Looks and feels like oil.

Yep. Mine smelled like cow ****. Now gear oil doesn’t have the nicest of aromas at the best of times but it should not smell like that. Also it was very dark at 65k of city driving.

Did you ever end up doing a how-to video on your Supercharger Oil Change ??
It’s pretty simple. It’s a fill plug at the back of the unit that you have to use a syringe with a clear plastic tube attached to suck out the oil. Then fill though same hole.

I’m half way through it. Work has pulled me to New York for 6 weeks so it’ll be late September when I get it out. If you pm me I’ll me glad to walk you through it.
