I tried to go through full grease job today on my 'mog, but there's a weird problem that worries me a lot.
When I tried to push grease through the driver side lower grease nipple nothing went in no matter how hard I pressed. I removed the nipple to see if it was blocked but it was not. I then pushed a screwdrived in the grease hole in the axle and it only went in about 5-10 mm. On the passenger side I can push it in much further.
I then cleaned the hole a bit and saw that there is some bright metal part blocking the hole where the thread for the nipple ends. Any idea what this might be? Something has to be in the wrong place.
It is bad enough that I can't grease the bearing/joint, but if there is something broken inside it sounds like tons of work, expensive tools and expensive spares...
