I have a similar problem with my tire carrier and have to grease while rotating the tire carrier. This does not work for you either?
Spraying WD40 is what I've been doing. I'll agree, it does work (some) but I'd sure like to get it greased. Thanks for the input.Chojeep said:I have the same problem with my currie. I've heard that greasing is difficult and the only way really is to take it off, grease, and then put back on which is ridiculous in my opinion. So... the only thing that's worked for me and is practical is WD40. Sprayed it on and and around and it swings fine now.
I'm looking into swapping to the bestop carrier as I would prefer for the carrier to open with the tailgate. That's my long term solution.
It does have a zerk and I've pulled it out and squirted some grease inside. I just sprayed the crap out of it with WD40 and it seems to have helped a lot.BLACK RUBI said:Does it have a zerk? Could be a problem with it or the grease in/behind it dried out? Secondly, if there is a zerk can you take it out and use a "needle type" fitting on the grease gun?
