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 2: 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.

Mazda CX-5 - Lubricate Trunk - Sunnyvale, California
No issues with the basic work. But this was supposed to be a 25k mile maintainance. Instead it was just a tire rotation and oil change. He did not check tire pressure (turns out the sensor was broken which I had to figure out myself). And cabin air filter needed replacing (any regular maintainance should have spotted that).

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport - Strut Assembly Replacement (Front) - San Diego, California
Tabitha was very friendly and informative. We did have an issue with the wrong part being shipped so it delayed the replacement by a few days. Nothing to do with Tabithas work. Car now runs great. I will definitely use her again for future car repairs.

Chevrolet Malibu - Creaking noise when turning the steering wheel - Yorba Linda, California
Jay not only diagnosed my problem once again. He found other problems I didn't know I had during the inspection, and got me fair quotes. I feel comfortable knowing he was with GM being that I own a GM product so he knows the vehicles!
