Body Lubrication and Maintenance

Print

The body mechanisms and linkages should be inspected, cleaned and lubricated, as necessary, to preserve correct operation and to avoid wear and corrosion. Before lubricating a component, make sure to wipe any dirt or grease from the surface with a suitable rag. If necessary, use a suitable cleaning solvent to clean off the surface. In addition, don't forget to wipe any excess lubricant off the component when finished.

To be sure the hood latch works properly, use white lithium grease to lubricate the latch, safety catch and hood hinges, as necessary. Apply Honda® or equivalent multi-purpose grease sparingly to all pivots and slide contact areas.

Door hinges-hinge pin and pivot points
 
Hood hinges-pivot points
 
Trunk lid hinges-pivot points
 
Door check mechanism
 
Ashtray slides
 
Parking brake moving parts

Use multi-purpose grease to lubricate the following components:

Brake master cylinder pushrod
 
Pedal linkage
 
Battery terminals
