So I've taken apart the sliders on some stock 40 seats, cleaned, and are ready to reassemble. Just thinking of a good lubricant that can survive an environment where dirt and water are going to be. Not being an expert on lubricants..........

Any Thoughts?

Welcome back Russ man... :beer:


Anything wet will attract dirt and create problems.

Dry film lubricant of some kind should work just fine.

There are some dry film lubricants that are suspended in a liquid, you spray them on and then let the carrier liquid evaporate, I think it is a little easier to get the lubricant in place that way. I have a bottle here called FINISH LINE Teflon-Plus Lubricant, it is meant for bicycle chains, shifters and cables. I never thought of using it for seat sliders, though, my seats are always all the way back and I never remember to lubricate them.

Lubri-Plate #3 It's a thick liquid impregnated with graphite. When it drys the graphite stays put and will not attract dirt. Great stuff! I did my spring packs with it.
