    Hello,
    I bought one of those pumps off Amazon. Not great. Worked ok, but still a little messy and A LOT of pumping. Like 100 per qt.

    didn’t need it for the rear diff and couldn’t use it for the t/c

    anyway you try you WILL make a mess. Just accept it.

    what I ended up using for the t/c and would recommend is pic below: cheap catsup bottle from the dollar store. A foot or so of plastic tubing from the hardware store. The flexible vinyl stuff. A cap of some sorts if you like. Just pour whatever 1/2 qt. At a time into the catsup bottle and squeeze it into the tc or mt or front diff. Whatever.

    Harbor freight specials for ~$6-8, use a 20% coupon if you want. I buy 2 or 3 and keep them around to use on whatever.

    Got around to greasing my 2016 OR zerks today. I found a total of 5. Working from back of the drive shaft to the front, 5-6 pumps of mobile 1 red purges the old black factory grease out of the U joints. #4 was a bitch to get to however due to heat shield and other crap in the way and so I rage quit. I’ll save that one for when I can jack the car up on a friends flat driveway so I can maneuver better.

    Interesting that you bring this up. I plan on doing the same this weekend and I don't want to mess with the regular coupler that is on my grease gun so earlier today I ordered a lock n' lube coupler and needle dispenser to hopefully prevent me from raging. lol

    Also remove the f-ing heat shield from #4, second from the front and rotate the shaft to 7 o-clock to conquer that bitch.

    The lock n lube is nice but it’s just so huge, hope it doesn’t hinder getting into tight spaces. Get a few diff couplers if you can, I hear they make 90 deg ones that are pretty clutch!

    Thanks for the tips! I purchased a 90 degree along with the lock n' lube coupler to be safe.

    @Amanelot I think the new part # for the cabin air filter is 88508-04010. Tried to order the # on the list but it was unavailable and no longer sold. Input my 18’ information and it gave me the new #.

    As far as those gear oil pumps, any of the outboard motor gear case pumps work well. They will screw on nearly all gear oil bottles.
