Whenever you take care of chassis greasing it is also advised that you walk around the vehicle and give attention to a number of other surfaces which require a variety of lubrication/protection.
Lubricate the door and tailgate hinges, door locks, door latches, and the hood latch when they become noisy or difficult to operate. A high quality Polyethylene Grease should be used as a lubricant.
HOOD/DOOR LATCH & HINGES
Wipe clean any exposed surfaces of the door hatches and hinges, hood latch and auxiliary catch. Then, treat the surfaces using a multi-purpose grease spray that meets Ford's ESR-M1C159-A specification.
Should be treated with Ford Lock Lubricant, part no. D8AZ-19587-AA or equivalent. Consult your local parts supplier for equivalent lubricants.
Spray the door weatherstripping using a silicone lubricant to help preserve the rubber.
THROTTLE VALVE (TV) & KICKDOWN LINKAGE
A water resistant long life grease that meets Ford's ESA-M1C75-B specification should be used for all linkages.
