    i'm 100% sure on a 1500 wheel barring you can't, i'm 95% sure on a 2500/3500 you can't either, its all cast and sealed

    Grease won't but heat will and the grease will hold all the shavings in there. Now I'm not saying this is your issue, but it is the only thing I can think of what the other guy is saying. Personally if it was a ABS issue I think the light would go off especially on such a new vehicle.

    Check with your dealer. I've had ABS sensors "cleaned" on both my '99 1500 and my '04 2500HD. It is/ was a service bulletin, NOT a recall. On my '99, I was able to get new sensors installed b/c the mechanic "accidentally" broke the sensors pulling them off, I wasn't as lucky with the '04 (different dealership, wouldn't 'work with me'). Once I started having problems again, after having this done, I pulled ABS fuses on both trucks. F&*% ABS!!!

    On the above post, I forgot to mention- sensors were cleaned at no cost to me, as it was a service bulletin at the dealerships, they know there is a problem.
