The zerk fitting has a hex nut at the end. If it is unthreaded it should be easy to pull out...I think COMP would have the exact instructions.

Yes the zerk threads out easy but the sleeve that the zerk threads into is what I canít get out .....Comp turbo says it is threaded as well with a O-ring and to use pliers to carefully unthread it ..but Iím not having much luck

You may need to buy or fabricate a tool. I've seen people use a pair of vise-grips with bent jaws to get into tight places. A stud extractor may work.

Yea I have some needle nose vise grips and some extractors Im about to try ...Comp says to leave the zerk threaded in when using the vise grips so it doesn’t crush or make the sleeve oval .....I’ll see how it goes in about 10 mins

Well if it’s threadded in I can’t get it out ... looks like I’ll have to remove the turbo and ship it back to them

Try to find a bolt with a nut to put in and tighten the nut then you can put a wrench on it

Ok ... so I got it out ... and from what Comp turbo told me was that there was a O-ring ... what I pulled out looks more like it was wrapped with Teflon tape and no sign of a O-ring

Well ...got about a week and the o-ring blew out again on the turbo ...back to square one. Maybe the o-ring wasn’t high enough temp range and it melted

No bueno. Thanks for keeping us updated. Did the turbo have a weird whine before the oring blew out?
