Hi,



The doors (especially the sliders) on my Honda Odessey van are starting to stick. Can anybody suggest something to put on the gaskets to make the doors open easier?



Thanks

Apply a silicone spray to a rag and wipe down the door seals.

Hi,

Thanks! Is WD-40 appropriate?

No. WD40 is a Water Displacer and makes for a lousy lubricant. You want to use a silicone spray.

Hi,

Thanks for the heads up. After using WD-40 for over 40 years I finally looked close at the can (after your comment), and it does call itself a “water displacer”. I did use it once or twice on my '66 Chevy C-10 for that reason, come to think of it. I have also been spraying it on squeaky hinges forever, and I always figured it was a also lubricant. Thanks again.

Myself I like a silicone paste rather than a spray. Apply the same way,with a rag.
