ISS Lube Procedure Part 2
Step 4: Disconnect shaft and push towards firewall.
Step 5: Pull shaft out from inside cab.
Note: The procedure to lube the shaft is described, in detail, in the instructions that come with the kit.
Step 6: Remove the spacer with needle nose pliers.
Step 7: Squirt all the grease from the kit into the end of the shaft, try not to get any on the sides at the top or it will be hard to keep the stopper from slipping out under pressure.
Step 8: After installing the stopper into the end of the shaft, place the u-joint at 90 deg. and press against a hard surface.

Not my work. I have seen this on other sites so i wanted to post it here to be helpful. Mine has been replaced once under warranty but for those that have no choice but to do it themselves, here is how.

if you are out of warrenty it will cost about 250.00 to replace the shaft my servesing dealer told me that the grease repair is a temp fix and will have to be redone within a year..that is why he is only doing replacements unless the person insists on the grease repair out of warrenty as well as under warrenty
