Body Lubrication


There is no set period recommended by Toyota for body lubrication. However, it is a good idea to lubricate the following body points at least once a year, especially in the fall before cold weather.

Lubricate with engine oil:

Door lock latches
Door lock rollers
Station wagon tailgate hinges
Door, hood, and hinge pivots

Lubricate with silicone grease:

Trunk lid latch and hinge
Glove box door latch

Lubricate with silicone spray:

All rubber weather stripping
Hood stops

When finished lubricating a body part, be sure that all the excess lubricant has been wiped off, especially in the areas of the car which may come in contact with clothing.
