Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

We have a rear lift gate on this Suburban that's making a squeaking noise.We're going to see when it goes down.

So there's some different hinge points that we're going to try to grease right here and here, over here and here.

We're going to use some water-displacement oil. Go over here and get all the hinges. And we're going to exercise it a couple times. So that I can exercise the lift gate a little bit better, I'm going to turn off the automatic. Sounds pretty quiet.

If your lift gate is squeaking, just doing what we did here should help you out.
