All my door squeak really badly. I tried liquid wrench and a few other silicone based sprays to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Yea that's actually what I meant. It was *NOT* the hinge on my Grand Cherokee, it WAS the door check unit and I just lubed it and no more noise.Some have found out that the Cadillac door squeaks are not the hinges - it's the friction "door stops" which hold the door open in 2 or 3 positions - the inner slide squeaks. Takes a bit of judicious squirting with a spray tube stuck in the lubricant can nozzle.
Sub, have you ever gotten silicone spray on a window? :tisk:First try a silicone spray. It dries to essentially a clear film, so if you miss inside the door, it won't mess up the window......use the supplied red plastic tube taped to the side of the can and carefully run it in along the length of the door check rod - the black thingy on the hinge that holds the door open......where it squeaks is inside the door where there is a set of spring fingers that clamp the check in a couple of positions.
Yup. That's the little bastard. Just try getting oil down inside the wheels "axle".My Jimmy has done this for years, its a combination of a worn hinge bushing and that door stop catch (the little wheel on an arm with the spring behind it). The only thing that stops it for any length of time for me is a dab of wheel bearing grease, on both the bushing and the stop catch. I put a good amount all over everything, then swing the door open and closed about a dozen times, and then wipe the remaining grease off with a rag. Lasts a good while, definately longer than WD 40 or silicone spray.
