    Sunroof Grease - these any good?

    My father in law was just having a tidy up and gave me a big box of aerosols, glues, greases, lubricants etc and these two were in amongst the haul. Just wondered if they'd be ok for the sunroof? Both clear silicon grease anything else I should check before using them?

    I'd also love to know what grease for the sunroof. About to put a moonroof in and want to lube up the silicone grease i got from Maplin is like treacle, don't dare use it to lube anything.

    VW do a silicone grease in a tube which works very well on the sunroof guides, seat guides, rear spoiler mech....

    Yeah I know VW do a grease but as it's just under £1,000,000 a tube I'm looking for something that will do the job a bit cheaper

    spray some of each grease on to a door hinge or other sliding surface, move it around and see if it lubricates well. Check that it doesn't attract any dust etc or gives a 'dry film' finish whilst still maintaining lubrication. That '100% silicone' spray sounds promising from the description.

    In my papers VW say to use G00045002 for the sunroof but also to use D00700004 for almost anything that need to be lubricated, as window rollers, sun roof, seat rails etc...

    Cant really find anything about that one :S


    I also found that 3M, CRC, Liqui Moly.. they all make a Silicone grease... But I dont know if they are any good because you want a grease that doesnt attract particles and dust...
