I was greasing the drive train when I noticed a missing sert by a knuckle. Flashing a light on it only showed that there may be something in there still, like the brass of a busted bulb still in the socket. I have no idea how long that area has gone without grease as I've only owned it 9 months. What's a guy to do in this situation?

Extract the remainder of the old zirk fitting and replace. Depending on how far down is has busted you may have to chase the threads.

Try a left handed drill bit, alex. If you're lucky, it might spin out while you're drilling it. You need a screw extractor. :(

Pardon for a moron here, but just which part are you working on? If it is easily removed you can use an "extractor" (from Sears etc) or even a rough phillips driver.

Thanks for all the info guys. Turns out I bought a simple easy out and it truly was an easy out. A lot of sweat for nothing, as I had the old one out and new one in, in under a minute. My advice is to get an easy out, I bought a kit of 4 sizes from tiny to huge for $10. Zert screwed on, greased it up. All good.
