New to the hobby. How do I get to gears and what do I oil and lube on this model?
Do I pop off the wheel cover on the truck?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Correct. As you can see in the exploded diagram:

Use a small flat screwdriver to gently pry the ends of the truck cover off the tabs it hooks onto.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

Use a grease intended for plastic gears.  Oil by itself isnít enough.
