A lot of the new fans have the access to the bearing sealed (not an easy plug to remove) On those I drill a hole to get access to the bearing.
Here is one fan that needed to be drilled out
The best way to lube the bearings is to remove the fan blade and grease the shaft rather than hope that oil can drip past the lock clip and seal.
I like to use brake grease as its cheap and very resistant to high heat, However the Chain lube BUCK NASTY mentioned is very good too(but really sticky so tont make a mess with it.
