Hi folks

Is there a DIY out there for lubing the chassis? I've searched but not found one and I'm hearing squeaks under the right front wheel arch..

Isn't the Chassis Lube Free as there are no fittings to lube. Sure you

can take a can of WD40 and go crazy!.

You might need to go to the Dealer and have the Sonata checked out.

Can you duplicate the squeaks by pushing up & down on the front right of the car? I agree about taking it in to the dealer.

I would use GRAPHITE rather than wd-40.

i tried to replicate the squeaking by pushing on the front shocks but no joy

its on the inside of the cabin and there from very low speeds (3 mph to highway speeds (90 )

Is GRAPHITE a brand name or a product? not heard of it before!

No, not a brand. It's the stuff pencils are made of.

Leave it to me to totally ignore the title of the post.

No idea, I just heard squeak and I thought of a squeaky door I had at one point.
My cousin, an ex-mechanic turned ex-con, had some crap lying around he said is better than wd 40 and applied it to the hinges.

Between me and you miami, I have no idea what a chassis even is. I figure it's something like the frame of the car? I'm always reading about ##% stiffer chassis equalling better handling and what not...

Hey Willayy!!

You never have to apologize here!

The Sonata Body rides on the Chassis. The under part with the Tires & Stuff.

Back in the old days the under part had like Nipples. I know you know Nipples!.

These nipples needed to be Lubed, thus the term Lube from 'Lube Oil Filter'.

And yes when I was young Pencils had Lead, so did Gas.

Now just Toys have lead & the Date Rape Drug GHB it seems.

jazzhands,

Graphite is wonderful for lubing high pressure metal-to-metal joints and hinges, but it's very nasty.

Your squeek may be in some of the rubber or plastic bushings. In that case, you wouldn't want to use trial and error with that nasty stuff. Try a can of pure silicone spray. It goes on clear, and dries clear with no greasy or unsigltly residue. You can spray it around higgledy piggeldy without making a mess, and it penetrates well. There is always a down side, and the down side to silicone spray is that it only lasts a month or 2. But it's so easy to apply that it's still worth it.

Warning: Silicone will make your driveway or garage floor dangerously slippery. We wouldn't want you to tailbone yourself or do a split.
