    Lithium grease

    So I need to treat the weather stripping on my car and I was told lithium grease was a good thing to use. I was looking online and there is white lithium grease but wouldn't that leave a cloudy residue or is there other kinds I can get?

    ive seen white lithium grease (the spray can version not sure if its the one ur talking about) used on some heavy machinery at work and honestly i can say that stuff seems to be pretty legit. its been exposed to the elements wind, rain, hot sun, and what not for a while and still keeps everything greased up. seems to be a great alternative to wd40

    I've never heard of using lithium grease on weatherstripping (doesn't mean people don't use it..), but I've always used Silicone Spray on my weatherstripping. I just spray a bunch on a rag and and wipe everything down. It's clear, never had any cloudiness or adverse effects. I would think lithium would leave a white haze?? You can get both lithium and silicone in aerosol cans at the parts store.

    yeah I may try silicone spray first. Just don't want to replace my weather stripping again anytime soon. One was enough and nearly broke the bank.

    Will the lithium grease leave a residue on the top of the windows that touch the weather stripping?

    +1 for spray silicone. I treat all our cars at the start of winter as it keeps the doors from freezing shut if the weatherstripping gets wet. I also use it to clean the weatherstripping by spraying it on and then wiping it down with a towel. No way I would use white lithium grease.

    We use dielectric grease on all weather strips.lithium grease not recommended any more.
    clean w/strip.
    put dielect grease on rag work it into w/strip.
    wipe excess grease off with fresh rag.
