What type of lubricant do you use to grease Honda Odyssey sliding doors? My doors are hanging up half way and then going back to the on position. My husband used W-D40 but that didn't work long.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Honda Odyssey 2008 needs sliding doors lubricated to slide smoothy.  My
husband used WD-40 which worked for a short while, but then they started
hanging up again.

Try white lithium grease. That works better and lasts longer in that type of application. HTH. -Jim


WD-40 is not a great lubricant, do as Jim suggested.

Yes, yes fluid film. and you get the added benefit that your odyssey smells like a sheep barn!

Karmon how do you check the slider wheels and how would I know if they are in good shape or not?
