While it is not common for a vehicle of that age, it is possible the rubber seals around the doors are aged enough to allow small amounts of air and noise to enter. If you can see physically the door isn't closed fully, check the closing points for lubrication as in 10 yrs the lubrication can collect rain, dust, silt, etc causing it not to function as it once did. Often times you may need to use a silicon spray to help remove the old lubrication and apply fresh. Silicon spray by itself will not provide proper lubrication for long. A local auto parts store should be able to recommend something for this. I most often use marine bearing grease as it stands up better to moisture.

Joy stick is making physical noise how do I lubricate it and with what (possibly WD40)

I'd be very cautionary about using WD-40 spray, possibly if you used one of the small "pen type " wd-40 applicators u could brush on a small amount around the perimeter of the ball that makes contact under the thumb pad. However, if u goto an auto parts store (or other specialty retailer) u can get an electronics cleaner spray and also a 100% silicone lubricant that is safe on electronics. Probably just an electronics cleaner will do the trick because likely there is just some built up grime & sediment that is causing the extra, un-needed friction. Good luck & Happy Gaming!!

I have no instructions and want to know if it needs oiling at all?

Does it run? Most of those machines recommend that you use something like a spray lubricant of the silicon variety sprayed under the belt

How do you oil a bugaboo pram ? Mine is making a horrible squeaking noise. Thank you Megan

Use silicon spray not oil based lubricants like WD40 . Lubricate the wheels and brake lever avoid the handle extension locking levers and the upper handle. Once a month spray some in to the handle locks. Look on the inside of the handle where it joins onto the plastic hubs. You'll see a slot in the plastic part and a wire rod in that slot. SPRAY IT!!! It will save you big $$$ in the long run. If wheels feel gritty remove from stroller and drop them in a bucket of hot soapy water. Rinse under running water give them a good spray of silicon and wipe off excess with a paper towel.

2004 alero making loud screaching noise by tire brakes are fine

It's the belts. Quick fix is spray some kind of silicone lubricant on them, like tire shine. You should really replace the belt or belts that are making noise, also check the belts tension. Too loose and they'll make noise

Belt moves and then stops

hopefully a polite (and helpfull) suggestion = The belt slides on a metal surface plate. to do this it needs to be under a certain tension to grip the drive roller and also needs lubrication between the belt and plate.
1 check the belt is not too loose, so a larger load makes it slip
2 You should have some silicon oil supplied with the machine - check the metal surface plate is clean and coat it lightly with silicon oil - run it for a while then try again.
Hope this helps

What product should be used to lubricate the support wheels under the glass turntable? Sucessive cleanings of the glass has not eliminated noise from the wheels during operation.

Use silicone spray, never an oil nor oil based products. The silicone spray has a carrier that evaporates after spraying, leaving only pure liquid silicone behind. It is non-toxic and non-flammable once the carrier has evaporated.

You can get silicone spray at hardware stores, and most cans come with a tube that assures you get silicone only where you intend to.

Sometimes, the noise is from gummy buildup on the wheel axles. If you can remove the wheels (some are attached to removable rings), try soaking in ammonia and hot water then scrubbing lightly with an old toothbrush. Then rinse well. If this is the cause of your problem you won't need the silicone spray.

2003 Jeep Liberty rear side window "squeals" when operated down.

I usually spray guide tracks with a silicone spray. It works pretty well. Up north where I am, when sprayed on door seals it keeps doors from freezing closed as well!
