Re: Clio III door stay mechanism lubrication

My 2011 car had to have its door stay replaced under guarantee.Only thing so far.

Lube of the mechanism and the not very sturdy looking hinges for long coupe doors a small worry.
Thick grease is gonna attract dirt,none at all would'nt be good either.

I had a good feel of the replaced door stay .
It has grease on it.
I would classify it as a very light coating of Vaseline.

Hope thas helpfull.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
