If it is like my Sprite, the reason is probably that BL installed a std. 
grease fitting to get the oil in the rack. So in this case I would give 
50% fault to the DPO and 50% fault to DBL !

P.S. My manual says that one should fill a grease gun with oil to lube 
the rack. Of course, the grease gun is not designed for this and leaks 
oil at all ends. An oil gun is on order! GDBL !
