    Thanks.

    Try silicone spray...works great without any overrun and mess!

    I should of added....don't use anything with lanoline or fluid film as it will cause the gasket to swell overtime...

    I use 3M Rubber Saver, comes in a little bottle with a foam pad applicator. Been using for a couple of years now. Works well.

    Shin Etsu grease is a great stuff. You only need a little bit to bring rubber back to life. I still have the same tube I bought in 2001. I’ve used on Honda Odyssey with sliding doors, on Mazda Miata with slow power windows. I used on my Tacoma on all rubber parts; CV boots, ball joint boots and weather strips etc.
