Probably a stupid question......but I gotta ask.

I did a PM on the lade this weekend (oil change and greasing). Can anyone confirm for me that there are 10 grease zerks on an `02 lade AWD?

thanks

Did you change your blinker fluid and check the muffler bearings? lol

I have no idea on the zerks.

yeah, but the johnson rods were a bit stretched.....so I fixed them...

Guess I will just keep greasing the 10 I know about and listen for problems (scientific engineering approach...and I R engineer :bigroll: )

Aren't the fittings sealed? This is quite interesting that my Ford Explorer has none! I guess it is a good thing that the Escalades have the zerks fittings.

Cool, your the man flyingdutchman, thanks for the pic links. I missed #7 and judging by the pics, would have taken me a bit to find. That sucker ain't gonna be easy to get to, but I'm sure I'll manage (just might lose a little skin of the ol knuckles)
