I am having a problem with the rear door on my girls ’99 Civic EX sedan. They are VERY stiff to open and close. I have applied generous amounts of White Lithium grease to both the door hinges and the slide but it does not seem to be improving the situation? The Pass. Front door does this also but to a lesser degree than the rear doors. When we first got the car about 3,000 miles ago, I though the P/O just did not use the other doors much and that is why they were stiff. However, we use all four allot and they are still stiff with use and lube??? :bh

No accidents

I had the car checked out on a left by a Honda specialist and he said no sign of body work except light tap to drivers rear. Carfax came back clean. :w00t

my 98 lx is the same way man, i just kinda learned to live with it. The rears are just as stiff now as they were 40k miles ago when i first got the thing, grease helps for a little while but it seems to just scrape off :(
