    Lubrication for wiper arm pivot points. Which lubricant to use?

    Have usually used Castrol LM Grease but is there something better/more appropriate for this?

    Not that I use them much after the g tech class coatings.

    Thank you

    They shouldnt need lubricating often at all. Like 1 or 2 times over the life of the car if that.
    Any grease will be better than none, i wouldnt buy anything special, id use whatever grease i had to hand, multipurpose etc.

    There are obviously loads of greases about, but for something like this, i really wouldnt stress over it. Not like its a high temp, high load, weight bearing part etc.
