    Hello all,

    Went out to my car and opened the boot after not being opened in a while, and it is very creaky unsurprisingly as it hasn’t been opened in over a month due to lockdown. What’s the best product to use on this? Was thinking WD40 but seen a few people online saying not to use this, any advice would be appreciated. Sounds like it is coming from the hydraulic bits, it’s a C1 if that helps anyone.
    Thank you all

    I was about to warn you I hadn’t tried the wd40 silicon product myself, but then I checked the reviews and think I might grab myself a can!

    Very good reviews, 5*! Always handy to have a can of it around the house I suppose!

    Been using it on my Routers and jigs for a long time, it's very good and very cheep and last for ages.
