which lubricant to use for door locks?

Mon, 04 Nov 2002 13:39:06 -0500


Constantine,

I used Sil-Glyde lubricating compound . . Contains silicone. Kinda looks
like petroleum jelly  . . . light yellow, partially translucent.
Non-melting, non-freezing, non-gumming, weatherproof.
It has lots of other uses . .brake pads, calipers, rubber boot lubrication,
weather stripping lube, speedo cable, door switch boots lubricant, etc etc
etc. Useful to have around an audi.

Sil-Glyde, Napa part number 765-1351

SJ
85 4k - - sold but still on the road
88 5kq
90 100q
