Default 2003 SLE

Hi guys,

Happy holidays!

I bought my wife and I an 03 SLE for Christmas, after driving a 96 SSE for the last few years. Its only got 69,000 km on it and is in great shape with the exception of the steering intermediate shaft, [yes, it clunks when turning the wheel] and the non working heated seat on the drivers side.

Ive read a number of threads on both subjects, and it looks like both are fixable with some effort.

One question on the steering shaft... Are there any grease fittings on the u-joints themselves? If not, how do you grease them if required?

No there are no grease fittings , you have to pull it out , it is an easy job just hard to get in there.Basically it is a cylinder shaft that goes in and out and that needs to be greased.Just follow the instructions its pretty easy.I lubed mine last year and I am still fine, probably due anytime.
