Well, seems I finally ran out of luck - my 3rd and 4th problems came out of hiding yesterday.

Both back doors "creak" when opened/closed, and the left-back seat opens up without being released by the button in the trunk.

Yep it appears the back doors like the creak. Not sure if that is lack of use or they just don't like the cold weather but they definatly need to be lubed. I need to do that, I was probably just going to spray them with some wd40.

Be careful about WD40. It is a water based lubricant and once the water evapourates, the lubrication properties are greatly reduced.

I use to work in a bike store and we constantly replaced chains and "drivetrains" b/c of increased wear from WD40 being used as a lube.

Plus in high school auto shop, WD40 was used to remove nuts/bolts or to put on a temporary lube.

yeah yeah, but then my hands will get all dirty. I know wd40 is bad to use as permanent fix. No worries. I fill find something.

Dang. #5, 3 in 2 days now.

This is simple though. My brake "sensor" thingie needs adjustment. It's possible for me to come to a complete stop without the brake lights ever coming on. Noticed it when I had to slam the pedal 1/2 to the floor to disengage the cruise.

Hey Y2K SE,

Slighly off topic, but I'm from Columbus, and was wondering what dealership you got your car from?

WD/40 will de-grease the lithium grease, and will only last a few weeks. I had a M/T Camry that had a squeky clutch. The premanent fix is the grease.

You couldn't have tried to get _my_ car.


Mine was acquired specifically for me through a dealer trade in Findlay last August.

Check your email.

this site is awesome. first time here. i thought my SE was the only one with back door noises. what type of grease will make it go away? and will the grease stay on or will i have to keep on re-applying it after a while?

use any generic white lithium grease....you can buy it by the bucket for pretty cheap. Also you can find white lith grease in a can w/straw attatchment (so you don't have so ruin your manicure to fix that squeak)

yeah WD-40 is more of a solvent than a long term lubricant, I wouldn't suggest it for this.

you may have to re-lube it after awhile (couple years?) if it starts squeeking again.

I suppose. Sentra Styling had already answered the question posed by 96744-SE.
