Grease seals for roof - where?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, preface that I'm a noob. Ok, my roof rattles. I've searched and it says people use dielectric grease to remove the rattle. It says to apply on the seals. My question is, where exactly do I apply the grease? Thanks

There's using grease...

But this seems more effective:

Although, doing both would probably be a good thing.

Seals should be greased 2 times a year, depending on climate conditions, and I do all seals at the same time! :thumbsup: Which means my lazy ass better go do it now! >_<

 

Yeah, I'll be picking some up today to do mine as well.

If you're talking about "rattling" then the washer trick that Scott posted is what you need to do. If the targa seals are merely squeaking then you can use the Shin Etsu grease from Honda or some high quality spray silicone grease from a Napa or Schuck's.

Not that I would recommend it, because it has it's own disadvantages, I lubricated most of my roof seals and mechanicals using powered graphite. Same type of stuff you would use in a door lock.

I would stray from that if you can. The graphite being so "dusty" it will probably only wick away moisture from the seals and cause them to dry out faster.

 

Stick with a silicone-based lube.
