Body Lubrication

Print

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.
