Halloween Trunk

Dose anybody happen to know how I can make my trunk lid stop squeaking when it opens? It only works quietly when it's rained outside, other than that, it sounds like somthing you'd put in out to scare the children at halloween.

It could be the rods rubbing or maybe the hinges. First determine where the issue is and then use WD or some lithium grease. I prefer LG on things like hinges.

Maybe remove one of the adjuster rods and slowly work the trunk til you find the area of the noise.

Thanks for the advice I've already tried liberal amounts of WD-40 on the hinges, so I know that dosen't work

I fixed mine for a little time by using lithium grease, however it comes back time to time. I just live with it, I kind of like the noise. Halloween trunk is also a hilarious title.

It way more irritating when a car door makes that creek than a trunk!
Oh yea now That I remember, I think a can of dry lubricant lasted longer than white lithium. It did not make a mess either. The torsion rods got more of a douse.
