Endplay in DA 10 Cranks - what to do?

Hey guys,

I was replacing the chain on my bike last night and noticed a little endplay in my cranks. This is only noticeable when I have the cranks in the 12 o'clock/6 o'clock position and am looking for it. I also noticed that the bearings sound kind of dry in there. It's been a rainy race season this year and I haven't done any maintenance to the BB yet. What do I need to do here? Pull them apart, regrease them and put them back together or do I need a new BB? I've never had a shimano 10spd BB apart.

Endplay isn't really an issue. Look at the exploded drawings on the Shimano web site to see how the bottom end is put together.
