The little tiny fitting that sits atop a tie rod end, for instance. Round head, about 1/8" in diameter. You put the nozzle of the grease gun to it to grease the fitting.

Seems how we are on the discussion of "grease", I think we should also clarify the type of grease used to grease the tie rod ends, ball joints etc.

Oh, ok, so the fitting that is on the grease gun I have already...I thought it was a special kind. I've used my gun for the ball joints before so I'm guessing it'* the right kind.

Connector that is currently on your grease gun is what you need for the Zerk fitting. However, if I read this correctly, I believe you will need an extra zerk fitting to screw into the cavity of the set screw. Then, attach your grease gun and pump away

I'll keep that in mind. My front passenger window has been working well for a while now which is good. I don't really care about the rear window at all right now. I have other things I need asap.
