The rear door on my patrol squeaks very loudly as you open it. I have tried several different lubes including chainsaw oil, axle grease, graphite powder and still it squeaks.

Any ideas on how or why. Also does anybody elses rear door squeak or is mine a one off???

Pooley I use a sellys product called Easy Glide. It,s a pressure pack spray that does not attract dust and helps stop this annoying squeak but must be applied regularly. It also has many other uses as you will find out when you read the can.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

make sure you spray into the rear door onto the joint and runner that prevents the door from swinging open too far.

This is what sqeeked on mine. I thought it was the hinges but it wasn't!

If you have already done it...I'll shut up now!

There are 2 doors but I'll bet your talking about the big one with the spare on it. Due to the weight of the wheel etc the stay/keeper bar at the bottom that holds it open has to be very strong to do its job, otherwise you'd be complaining of it crushing you cause it keeps slamming shut on the back of your scone.
You have to get the lube in between the spring slides.
