If WD-40 isn't doing the job, you need a heavier oil/grease.
You might want to remove the hinge pins one at a time and slather on some axle grease.
If the door isn't aligning properly, that's a different story.


May you camp where wind wonít hit you, where snakes wonít bite and bears wonít git you.

Sometimes you have to just keep on sprayon the WD 40 on. I guess if it is in a tight area it may take it a bit to get into the sqeaky zone. I neve had anything that WD 40 wouldn't get, but sometimes it can take a little while.

WD-40 is a temporary fix.

Lube the hinge everyday, along with opening and closing the door, using "silicone spray."

Eventually, the noise will disappear.

All the exterior hinges should be lubed at least twice a year.
