Hi,

On my T8 MY16 the left hand side rear door has started to make squeaking noises, like a squeaky hinge when being opened. I can also feel a slight, slight resistance as I close it, when the door swings past a certain position. The dealer/ service centre suggest I add grease to it.

Has anyone here had a similar issue?

If I do grease it, should I just apply grease to the visible part of the arm, and how much do I apply?

Thanks!

I would suggest you add some WD40 . . just spray it into the hinge, top and bottom

Had it on a new car less than few months old and then turned out to be a bent hinge which was replaced on warranty.

I would clean it as suggested and then you could spray it with lithium grease and see if it holds

My16's same door also made very loud squeaking noise, especially when opening or closing the door slowly. I bought this Permatex White Lithium Grease from amazon https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80345-White-Lithium-Grease/dp/B000HBNV58 and applied it to the hinge. It seems fine so far after few months.
