Body Lubrication and Maintenance

Print

LOCK CYLINDERS



Apply multipurpose lubricant or Superlube(r) sparingly through the key slot. Insert the key and operate the lock several times to be sure that the lubricant is worked completely into the lock cylinder.

DOOR HINGES & HINGE CHECKS



Spray a silicone lubricant on the hinge pivot points to eliminate any binding conditions. Open and close the door several times to be sure that the lubricant is evenly and thoroughly distributed.

TRUNK LID OR TAILGATE



Spray a silicone lubricant on all of the pivot and friction surfaces to eliminate any squeaks or binds. Work the tailgate to distribute the lubricant evenly.

BODY DRAIN HOLES



Be sure that the drain holes in the doors and rocker panels are cleared of obstruction. A small screwdriver can be used to carefully clear them of any debris.
