Spring is here~Gummi Pflege! Lube your seals/Lithium grease your joints /hinges

It's that time of year to pay special attention to your weather seals.

I've not found anything that even comes close to Gummi Pflege for protecting them



Buy here:

or Amazon:

Jbanks15 also adding these links here for roof and joints/moving parts:

and this from Muzu in German:
http://www.wusblum.de/fotos/slk/pfle...hmierblatt.pdf

and pics from the above pdf minus the instructions in German attached below as pdf
Use the lithium grease on joints and the gummi on seals
T1-T3 seals - gummi
T4- door latch - grease or lithium grease
M1 n M3 - grease or lithium grease
M2 = gummi
K2 gummi
K1,K3,K4 - latches and hinges - grease or lithium grease
K5,K6,K7 gummi - little bumpers
D2, roof latches - grease or lithium grease
Other Ds - if hinge, grease or lithium grease
if seal, gummi
********************
Top pics R170, bottom pdf R171 but both models have similar if not exact lube points
*************************
DO NOT USE WD-40!!! IT IS A SOLVENT. NOT A LUBRICANT
*************************
CAUTION: Whether opening or closing the roof to lubricate, ensure when done, that you let the roof continue in whatever direction it was moving when you started to finish its cycle.

Holding roof open
