[Steering & Suspension] How to fit grease nipple on rear axle berlingo
#1
Process is really straight forward buy grease nipple (6 or 8 mm)
   

Drill a hole with 5.5mm or 7.5mm like in the picture. Go slow. When you drill
trough first casing you will get to white plastic sleeve. Be sure to drill that plastic also.

Go really slow until you get to hard stuff. That hard stuff is axle. Then stop.
Fit the nipple and apply grease. Lots of grease.
The problem is that you have to fill entire axle and rear arm of grease that is about 3-4 kg.
Or you can put some grease every 5-10 thousand kmh. When you apply grease,
the grease will travel through hole and go where it is easier to go. Not where you would like it to go.
You would like it to go to the bearing that is why you need to fill everything with grease so you
can force the grease to go to every hole inside, and finally to the bearing.
But again 4kg of grease is a lot cheaper than changing the whole rear axle.

EDIT: real pic from my blingo

   
   


Here is the video where you can see inside rear arms and rear bearing.
