The Sienna 2014 Base rubber seals on the non-power sliding door stick to the frame and it is tough to open the door in the morning after the night. What can be used to lubricate rubber? I've tried WD-40 but it doesn't help.

Thanks for the quick response. It's only available at Home Depot in Canada, but I found something similar at our Home Depot.

DANCO 0.5 oz. Silicone Faucet Grease 88693 - The Home Depot

I will try it and let you know the result

You can use any Silicone lubricant that is safe for rubber. With Winter around the corner, it is anyway that time of the year when you dress up all the rubber seals especially the ones around doors and trunk.

Any hardware store will have silicone grease. Silicone is safe for use in rubber. Never use petroleum based grease or oil (WD40 is petroleum based) on rubber.

Not relevant for door seals, but if you have a silicone o-ring or gasket never use silicone grease on it! Petroleum grease is safe for silicone o-rings :unsure::LOL:
