Lock Lubrication

Post by Honey500 » Mon 12 Feb, 2018 9:21 am

Hi Guys,

Looking for advice from the brains trust.

Passenger door lock feels stiff to turn so I figure needs some lubrication. Wondering what the recomendations might be

I have previously used graphite but not sure if this is ok with the vaccum system???????

Thanks

Stuart

graphite powder is all you need any thing wet will attract dust. It may be the lock itself needs a clean if so just remove the lock and give it a once over

Thanks team.

I was certainly hoping it was the right stuff given I already have some in the shed :happy3:
