This is my first go around doing the connections with dielectric grease. Has anyone done this before that can warn me of common mistakes if any. I have not used this stuff before nor am I a veteran with the Teryx. Are there any common mistakes people make when applying this stuff to connections. As well are there any places you don't want to use the stuff. From what I hear if your in water a lot its a must. Already finding out how much I love removing the Phillips head screws that are chewed up under the frame to take side panels off. Any help with this would be great. Thanks guys.

The stuff works great, my first experence with it was installing a sprinkler system, but I now use it on any electrical connections on my ATVs, you can't really go wrong other than just making a mess, as far as the phillips heads if there is any of the slot left I try a impact driver if not just try the old vice grips but Sears does make an extraction kit just for that.

Tried the impact driver already no go. So far I have two on one side that are pretty much smooth now after the rock. Side panel took a real beating as well. It's horrible they used such a mickey mouse fastener in that location.

You can also grind a slot into what's left of the head and use a big flat head to get it out. I have done that one many times.

I use a 1/4" Socket with a driver head. You can put a lot of pressure on the screw with a ratchet... more than with a driver anyway.
