    My rear slider doesn't open as smoothly as I'd like it to. What would be a good lube to use for the rubber/plastic tracks that the pane of glass slides along?

    I want to use something that's not going to degrade the rubber/plastic over time, and something that won't gunk up over time or cause other problems.

    Triflow? Synthetic grease?

    A graphite lube. Careful application of a colloidal, brush-on would work:

    I don't recommend the dry stuff. There is a spray graphite from the PB Blaster guys. I'm having gool luck with it, so far, on my clutch pedal squeak. It's messy to apply though.
