Default Crank spring lube hole.

I have the good habit of when I have to look up something in the car manuals, I always read something else nearby. The subject action caught my eye.
my mental oil routine does not include this item...

Turns out I have the front storage box which blocks access to the small hole in the crank bearing mount. I'll get after that soon with the special spring lube.

You should be able to access it from the engine side below the radiator..........

Hi again Clem. That hole in the hand-crank bearing lets oil lubricate the auxiliary flat spring which rubs against the front crossmember.
