Hidden grease fittings

While building my new low voltage center I came accross some hidden grease fittings on the electric landing gear. There are 2 on each side,on the front side of what I believe to be the gear reduction unit.The curb side ones are really tough to get at because you have to climb into the basement and reach around the propane tank box,at least on my unit.The driver side are relitivly easy.None of the fittings had ever had ANY grease run through them,I depressed the ball checks to look because I expected this.So, if you have electric landing gear that is grinding and noisy like mine was,you should check this out.The pic is not real good,I had to just aim and shoot with the camera and hope for the best.

I found those by accident also, appears to have been painted over with gloss black then installed in the dark cavity of my front storage area. Scraped the paint off the the check valve with very fine sand paper and shot it with the grease gun three times. Thanks for posting!
