    ok well im not sure if this is the right section...but if not im sure a mod will move it for me.

    ive got a 93 eddie baur 4 door and for about...ah...2 months ive had a slight squeek when i open or close my drivers side door. and just recently its become really loud and quite annoying/embarrassing...
    ive tried your regular ol' WD40 and that just seemed to make it worse, then i tried automotive oil, then i tried wheel bearing grease...nothing seems to work for more then a day.
    i know this sounds silly but im sick of it.
    if anyone knows something to do or use please speak up!

    thanks guys :salute:

    Silly question, but have you been able to isolate the noise to a certain hinge? The box-style hinge most often makes noise on my ST. I use a waterproof polyurethane lubricant (the same stuff you use on bushings) so prevent the WD40 wash-off and white lithium wear-off.

    Well think I've got the source pinpointed at the lower hinge, near the little plastic rolling piece. It seems only to squeek when there is pressure on it. And I just de-greased the whole door jam and I'll see what happens.
