Hmmm... http://stokesabode.com/amsoil/grease/Synthetic-Water-Resistant-Grease.htm

On another note, I still have my tube of "Honda Genuine" Shin-Etsu Grease. The passenger side door was making a very small amount of squeaky noise; it sounded like it was where the window meets the seal, so I applied the grease to the rubber seals and so far so good.

On that note, this Honda Grease I highly recommend. It made my Honda's power windows like new - clean the rubber with soap and water, let it dry, apply the grease with a cloth rubbing it in like car wax, wipe up any excess. Repeat if still noisy/sticky.

That Honda grease is good stuff.  You'll be fine with that.  I think we used regular white lithium grease or silicone spray lube at Ford .  .  .

Silicone spray lube is what I use for squeaky car doors.

You can use the thick stuff on the hinges and latches.  I know Ford had a special grease specifically for door latches.  But any kind of multi-purpose grease will work.  On the weatherstripping, you can use silicon spray and apply it with a rag.  Spray some into a rag and wipe all the seals .  .  .

Well... I'm already sold on the Honda grease for rubber seals, just wanted to share with you guys. What I'm looking for is something for the latches.
