This site, like most, has a search function.

Even better:

How to Search:

For future reference: Don't use the search on this site. Simply use Google and end the search text with "site:lotustalk.com". E.g.
Transmission Fluid change what bolt site:lotustalk.com no space betw site:lotustalk.com

It is not listed by Lotus as a normal service item. They are sealed, unless as in some early 400's they leaked out the nose. You are better off search Eaton TVS supercharger maintenance recommendations.

There is no scheduled maintenance although you will find recommendations to change the oil (a separate operation) at relatively long intervals. The issues on a few early 400s regarding leaks from the supercharger are not endemic to the design and resulted from improper seals in the OEM supplied device....a condition that has since been rectified and was fixed under warranty for the few cars that suffered the problem. Not a concern.
