Fig. Fig. 1: Body lubrication points

Body lubrication should be performed at regularly scheduled intervals.

Apply multipurpose chassis grease to the following areas:

Hood hinges, lock, and striker
Door hinges, latch, and striker
Trunk hinges and striker

Use grease sparingly on the door and trunk strikers, as they may come into contact with clothing.

Use powdered graphite to lubricate the following items:

Door key lock cylinders
Trunk key lock cylinders

Do not use oil or grease to lubricate the insides of lock cylinders.

Use silicone lubricant to preserve the rubber weather stripping around the doors and trunk.
