Leaking Oil Reservoir

I just bought a 1998 Ski Doo Formula III 600 and I noticed that there is an oil leak on the right side. From what I can tell it's coming from the oil reservoir. Can anyone tell me what I have to do to get the reservoir out. I just don't want to take things off that don't need to. Thanks for your help.

on my 440 after the airbox the carbs too can be released from their sockets without disturbing their settings, or removing hoses cables etc. , pull them into the air box space and you shuld be able to follow the hoses from the tank to the leak - best to replace lengths of hoses but damage is almost always at the bulge on a pipe - so nip off a half inch or so and reconnect.

when i replaced the resevoir on my skidoo i had to remove the coolant fluid holder thing, and the airbox, and then there was just some screws into it. it was a little tricky to get it out from under the body plastic, but it was pretty easy.
