Hi,
Discovered what appears to be a bleed screw or grease nipple on the under side of each of the trailing arms.
They are located just forward of the damper lower fitting.
I removed the dust cap and grease was visible on the hole. I slackened the nipple and nothing came out.
Cannot find them on the exploded parts diagrams.
Anyone any idea what they are and purpose.
Many thanks
Regards
Darryl

Thanks Paul,
That solves the mystery of why our car appeared to have one nipple on the rear caliper when documentation indicates it has two.

Regards
