The doors (front and rear pax doors, not the rear) on my 80 series make an unpleasant squeaking noise when the doors are opened and closed after the truck has been parked in the sun on a hot day. Only happens in the summer. Have tried lube both RP40 and dry lube stick but still they squeak. Any help would be appreciated. (Selling the LC to buy a Patrol is not an option , thanks!)

do a low speed row over and claim 4 new doors on insurance,,or get yourself a can of silicone spray and load up the hinges, rp40 dries out..

Thanks for your help. I used silicone on the hinges and rubber grease on the door limiter. No more noisy doors!!

Lux, That door stop thingy, that slides into the door, gets pretty noisy, and needs plenty of silicone or drilube. If noise is only in the summer, it might be an expansion problem. Vehicle had any body work done? Our 79 series make a noise, but only after they've been in dirty conditions. regards..

Try Lanoguard 3000 or Lanotec. Should be available at your local marine dealer or hardware store.

Keith. Remove the door travel limiters and see if the noise goes away. If it doesn't, the noise is obviously elsewhere, probably in the hinges. I use 'Inox" for this type of situation. If the noise is in the travel limiter, try using rubber grease on the plastic coated section. On my car it is the only lubricant that permanently works. From memory, a door travel limiter from Toyota is around $112....rediculous. Good luck.

follow Dereks suggestion, Inox is good, BUT Pro-ma MBL is better use on door limiterand all hinges.

Cheers
