Need a little help from our car guys on here. The drivers door on my 01 yukon just started to squeak, i dont know what the best remedy is for it but thought i should run it through the forum, would wd40 work just fine or is there a better option?

Thanks for all of the help in advance.

I like to use that dry lube stuff. You don't end up with a oily mess that way

Don't use WD 40. It will eventually dry up and leave you again with a sqweak. I would suggest graphite power which is also grease free. White lithium grease is pretty clean too and an excellent lubricant.

If it's the hinge that squeaks, definitely avoid WD40- it has cutting oil in it, which will accelerate wear. If you have a gun, use some slide lube. That was recommended to me by a guy with a body shop, who happens to be into guns.

Another one that I have used with luck is dirt bike chain wax. Sprays out of a can, and drys up so dust and dirt don't stick. I use that stuff on all kinds of things

That's the one I couldn't think of. Did you work at the Desert Proving Grounds?
