Hi guys
Ever since i purchased my toledo few months ago, the driver door had this annoying noise which i understand is a well known issue. I know many people recommend white lithium grease so just wanted to share with you guys that i used copper grease and it works like a charm....
I'm attaching photo of the pin that makes the noise in my case.
Hopfully it might help someone.

Squeaking on door isn't an easy problem to diagnose as we can't hear it. Copper slip is an very high melting point grease with no lubricating properties, so its not ideal for doors.

Hi
The noise in my case happends when door in movement (open/close) so i got the chance to hear and feel the vibrations from the pin (marked in yellow arrow).
Lubricating it seems to do the trick...
I only used copper grease because that was avialable in my toolbox at that moment but it solved the issue for now.
