Boot problem when opening roof

Another roof issue guys.

The boot starts to open but then slows and stops. If i give it some assistance it opens and closes fine. Where abouts do i need to lubricate (as i think that might be the issue as it only happens every once in a while)?

If you are sure there is no cyclinder link, then use lithium grease in some of these spots:

they appear to be more of the points to lubricate for roof problems...mine is just the boot when it starts to open for the roof to fold into. stops when the roof is approx at a 30 deg angle. so thought someone might be able to show where the points to lub are?
