    Every month and every time after off-roading, dry or wet.

    I had one go on the M62 last year .. it won't happen again. My fault, I knew it was bust, couldn't find a spare so took the chance to drive home, towing the caravan, wife and kids, from Anglesey .. ;)

    Better go and do mine then-thought once or twice a year was enough-unless off road of course,which I don't currently

    If I didn't go off-road I also wouldn't bother with more than once a year ... possibly twice .. ;)

    Like Paul D, every month since I had a prop UJ snap.

    I don't want another one to snap thankyou. Not for the sake of a few pence worth of grease.

    Like the rest of the guys,once a month if off roading,[keeps the U's well lubed and keeps most of the muck out].Otherwise once or twice a year or before a long journey.:D.
