    There are no factory grease fittings. If aftermarket sway bar ends are installed, these will sometimes have fittings for the grease gun.

    +++++++++++

    I try to keep myself busy while the oil is draining by lubricating the variuos rubber boots under the car. My ever growing list includes the CV joint boots (2 on each half-shaft), F&R; the sway bar end links; suspension and subframe bushings; steering rack "gaiters" (accordion-like end and middle seals); and lower ball joint and tie-rod end seals.

    I use a spray silicone lube on all these parts. I figure the silicone will keep the rubber covers supple and the joints intact longer. I also get more old oil out of the engine that way...

    silicon means white grease??

    hi,
    you mean the white silicon grease ?? which we use for door and general perpose ??
    as long as me and other member mention there is no direct grease point at all for grease perpose.
    just wondering about your post as well want to know all joint and point you mention is under sealed type rubber cap so did you lift up little lips and spary grease with tiny spray pipe which comes useally with grease bottle ???

    reply appriciated ... thanks in advance

    Hi Neel,
    No I meant Silicone Spray, NOT white grease:

    I just soak the OUTSIDE of the rubber caps to keep them flexible.

    If you are determined to inject grease into a joint you can use a needle with your grease gun like this:

    The grease needle can inject lubricant either by piercing the rubber boot or slipping under the edge of the rubber (as on a lower ball joint)

    I had this same question because I'm starting to get some wicked noise coming out of the driver side wheel on our gen2. I'm worried the bearing needs to be replaced and it sounds like a bitch to do.

    Wheel bearings make a URRRRR noise at speed, increasing and decreasing on curves, as the bad bearing will be under more or less pressure. Replacing Honda wheel bearings requires a press, and the new wheel bearings need to be properly oriented, or the ABS system will not work. I farmed the job out on our Acura.

    Clunking during parking lot maneuvers (speed bumps) is usually caused by sloppy sway-bar end links. Try the front ones first...if you want to troubleshoot beforehand, disconnect the sway bar entirely and go for a short drive to see if the clunking is present.

    There is a video on YouTube showing the replacement of end-links...search there, for videos by Fishycomics.
