How to Lubricate Car Trunk Hinges

open car trunk

It’s easy to forget about the trunk hinges on your vehicle. Over time, the hinges become dry and contaminated with debris. This leads to a trunk that’s noisy and difficult to use. If you want your trunk to operate buttery smooth, like it did when it rolled off the assembly line, you’ll need to clean and lubricate it.

Part 1 of 1: Lubricating trunk hinges

Materials Needed

  • Shop rags
  • White lithium grease

Step 1: Clean the hinge. Use a shop rag to clean the hinge of any debris and buildup.

Step 2: Lubricate the hinge. Spray white lithium grease on both sides of the hinges.

Step 3: Move the trunk. Move the trunk several times to lubricate the hinges.

Lubricating all of the hinges on your vehicle, including the trunk, is an important part of keeping your vehicle in good condition. If you don’t feel like doing this yourself, the experts at YourMechanic will come to your home or office to do it for you.
