Troubles Changing Oil On Procharger..

I can't get the tab on the top of the Procharger (where you would usually put in the oil) off and I think it's because the allen wrench socket is somewhat warped. I didn't take off my 'charger itself nor did I take off the front bumper to check it out but does anyone have this issue? What does everyone else do when they change their Procharger oil? Can I go on for another oil change until I change the oil (it's been 2 oil changes already) because I don't have a garage to work in and I'm going to school. Basically I don't have the time or the equipment now or is it a bad idea to let it run on the same oil so long? Thanks!

I have very short flat screwdriver to get that screw out...which one you talking about if you wanna use allen wrench ? I\m putting oil in th same hole where oil dip stick is.if you don't have a shrot flat head, take that wheel plastic cover out, or just move it a bit (possible if you get screws out)
