One Grease Fitting I Couldn't Get....

    Done an oil change and grease job on my truck...but there is one grease fitting I could not get with my grease gun.
    It is the fitting on the rear universal of the front drive shaft. I took off the little guard shield and still could not get the nozzle of my grease gun on that little burger....
    Ok....I got the regular grease gun with the flex hose......there was not enough room for the nozzle to snap completely on the fitting.
    So is there other nozzles on the market out there that are smaller in diameter that gets in this tight space so where this fitting is. It's the 2010 DC V6.
    Also the only fittings that I found was five. Is that all of them?
    Thanks so much for your alls help :)

    Have the same issue with one on mine. If you do enough searching, there's a post where someone suggested a small grease gun without the flex hose. I'm planning on picking one up and giving it a try.

    Good idea using a grinder on the sides of the grease gun. That 2nd zerk is a pain.

    Needle adapter. I can rotate it to the top and drop in from above with my flex hose w/o the needle adapter but it's a pain.
