There's already a couple of posts in the history of this forum already, but worth repeating I think.

For a few quid off of ebay you can get some lovely M6 90deg grease nipples. You can fit them to your upper control arms (there are blanking bolts as standard) and keep the ball joint and bearings nicely greased.

It's an expensive MoT failure Smile

Although I'm really not quite sure how it got through last year's MoT given the state it was in.

Interesting - definately blanking plugs on the new arm that was fitted...maybe this is a new addition.
