My other vehicle is a ford ranger and he has a ton of how to videos on the Mazda which is the same truck, he's great, I've yet to see that one
So now we know why BMW blinkers don't work.
How does one lubricate the hinges? I've never heard of suchOn top of that, condition seals annually, lubricate doors/hinge assemblies as needed
Use graphite or some kind of dry lube. A lot of people mistakenly use WD-40, but all that does is act as a magnet for debris/dust to attach themselves to the hinge and make your problem worse.How does one lubricate the hinges? I've never heard of such
Fire hydrant !? Lol there's a story there I can tellUse graphite or some kind of dry lube. A lot of people mistakenly use WD-40, but all that does is act as a magnet for debris/dust to attach themselves to the hinge and make your problem worse.
That being said, I've never once done it. I was going to on the Cav because the doors were getting increasingly loud opening/closing, but, well, it kind of met a fire hydrant, haha.

I agree, I've run synthetic in my '11 1.4T for the last 35k miles, I do my oil changes from 3k if it's bee a long time (I don't drive it all that much) or 4500 miles if i out them on in 6 months or so, temperature changes, dusty driving, a lot of city drives all play a (small) factor in the oils viscosity and I'm not dropping a new turbo in her anytime soon!!It's highly adviseable to use full syn, whether Dexos 2 is or not. The Cruze's bad reputation for blowing turbos was largely due to inadequate oil spec - especially in the 2011-2012 models that said a syn blend (dexos 1) could be run to the early OLM calibration of close to 10,000 miles. Even the later calibration of 7,500 was pushing the limits of dexos 1. I've used Synpower @ 5,000 miles with few exceptions (two changes of Schaeffer's 9000 and two of Mobil 1) and mine's still in one service-free piece at 91,000 mi. so I'm sticking with that.
