    sliding door lubrication

    I have a 2002 EX and wanted to know what I can lubricate the sliding doors with. They seem to make noise when they open (louder than normal) and where should I put the lubrication?

    Thanks for your help.

    im sure you have looked at the rollers to make sure they are there, intact and rolling. i usuall hit them and the tracks with a spritz of white lithium grease from time to time. clean up the excess to reduce the attraction of dirt.

    Make sure to get the area on the middle roller track where it bends to close the sliding door.

    I have been using marine grade grease. I apply it with a small brush making sure to get it in the track.

    I use a heavier grease than lithium as well - with an old toothbrush.

    For the Bottom track, use "wheel bearing grease", do not use white lithium grease. It's to light. Tried white lithium grease, (on the bottom track), resulted in my sliding doors "grinding and binding", during the last 10% of closing.
