Hey all, so is there really just a single grease fitting on the PW? I know about the elusive unorthodox fitting on the rear of the front drive shaft and already have what is needed to do that.

But everything else seems to be sealed. Are there any other grease points on this truck?

Also, how much grease do you all shoot into the fitting on the front shaft? I assume it's a constant velocity joint, so any rules of thumb?

Thanks. My PW is about to get it's first oil change and I am gearing up for routine maintenance.

I always try and get one good pump of greese in each fitting as a rue of thumb for me.

for the 3rd Gen PWs, we have 3 greese points. drive shaft and outer tie rod ends.

The only grease fitting on the 4th gens is the front drive shaft, everything else is sealed, unfortunately. I always pump grease in the drive shaft until I see it oozing out the other side.

Thanks fellas. I agree there are downsides to the sealed joints (and benefits of course), but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
