I own Seville SLS 96 for the last 4 years and have put about 28K miles but never lubricated anywhere. Any idea what should be lubricated and how often. Recently I hear some sound and I guess it is some wheel bearing sound but not sure. Is there any lubrication required for any bearing such as grease. Any ideas please.

Thanks
John

I believe that all your ball joints and tie rod ends are permanently lubricated and sealed. If there was a lubrication service required it would be defined in the owner's manual.

Squeaks or groaning noises are usually associated with bushings which have worn out and/or cracked. Grinding noises are usually worn brake pads, while chirps and squeals are belts and pulley bearings.

My 94 has at least 2 zerks up front, none in back.

I think its steering links.....or maybe the upper ball joint....cant remember....but there is something to grease, not like most cars though.

And the damn non greaseable sway bar links are like $75 each!!!!

The '96 might still have a grease fitting or two up front.
