Hi,

Wife and I finally splurged and after looking for two months came across a beautiful 2011 ESV with 23,000 miles. The interior still smells new!

Im taking it in for an oil change and I was just wondering if on my car there are grease fittings on the front end, or are they sealed like on most newer cars.

I plan on doing the oil changes myself after the free ones run out and trying to determine if it will be as simple as changing the oil or if I need to go get a grease gun. Thanks!

There are two grease zerks on the front end, thats it. The outer tie-rods have the zerks, you can see them on each of the front wheels.

Hi, are these fittings on top or bottom and do I need to get underneath the truck to see them or are they accesible from the wheel wells. Thanks

On the bottom, you can see them next to the breaks, outer tie-rods.

Now you got me second guessing myself... Its either on the top or bottom, you can see the zerk with the vehicle parked.
