Here was the first go. Fiber reinforced sticky back teflon tape.
update: on hotter days with no lubricant, the doors stick a bit before abruptly giving way. a bit worrying in a parking lot situation where you may ding another carI opted to forgo any kind of tape or wax or anything like that, and the doors still function just fine. Just mildly more force required for opening and closing.
curious - what happens with other lubricants?I still haven't tried the Teflon tape but its good to hear it works well.
Actually the carnauba past wax works great for most owners. It goes on dry and seems to last without any residue.
It is very different then other types of lubrication which I strongly do not recommend.
They just don't work as well for whatever reason and it was attracting dirt. Some complained about it and I asked them to try the carnauba and it was fine after that.curious - what happens with other lubricants?
