Crank removal/lube(3 posts)

I have a creaking sound coming from my bottom bracket area when I push hard on my left peddle. Could my bottom bracket require grease? Is it difficult to remove Ultegra cranks? What tools will I require?

Thanks,
dd

9 speed ultegra cranks are self extracting with a 8mm allen wrench.You need Park bbt-2 to get the BB out to get grease where it needs to go. Grease also on the crank/spindle interface.
What Rustycogs said plus wrap some teflon tape on the bottom bracket threads and never creak again.(nm)firstrax
