Re: driveshaft carrier lubrication


    When I lubed the U joint on my '91 200q driveshaft, I turned the zerk
fitting with a small wrench to a point where I could get the grease gun on
it. Can't remember which way I turned it, but it made greasing it a snap. I
tightened it back up when I was done.
    Can't grease the S4 that easily, though - you have to pull the exhaust
system and heat shield just to see the driveshaft. I'm assuming there is no
grease fitting on the u-joint at this point :o)
