Default U-Joint Lub

Is there a better way of lubing the throw-out bearing? My PicUp and I are getting older now days, and I'm having a hard time getting to it. Did install a transmission dip-stick which took care of that issue
Thanks

The throw-out -- the one forward of the shift lever under a metal panel. I'm having to removed my thick floor mat. That u-joint is a bear too (for me

Most throw out bearings these days are sealed. How old is yours?

Most replacement release bearings today are sealed and can't be greased thru the collar fitting.

Older bearings can be greased thru the collar fitting.

A flexible hose could be fitted to the grease fitting to the side of the bell housing so the grease fitting could be accessed near the pedal shaft.

That collar needs/should be greased every once in awhile, a pump or two will do.
