    Default How to get a nipple in here? ... a grease nipple.

    Howzit guys,

    I've some threads on the net about the clutch pivot bearing ad solving the noise/squeak...

    My Td5 doesn't have a thread in the clutch pedal box/housing to screw the grease fitting into.

    Any ideas? Can it be done on my Landy?

    Miks, this is what I did, and it's still quiet after 18 months.

    Thanks Bosvark, I'll look into it.

    Would still love some help with the grease nipple - anyone?

    Apologies for digging up an old thread.

    Where does the grease nipple fit into? I have been driving the car a lot again lately and the squeak is driving me mad.
    There does not seem to be a tapped hole in my Td5's clutch box, where the later Defenders seem to have it.

    Hopefully this doesn't mean I need to remove and dissemble the box, to get to the parts that need lubrication

    Miks forget the nipple. Its not that effective. Just open the peddle box from the top (6 screws iirc), and spray liquid grease all over tgw shaft, spring and linkages. Close up and you done. Mine hasnt squeaked in over a year.
