I am not advertising this product but it seems to be suitable for the corrosion problem. Here is the description of the product in France, (English translation): Multipurpose oil WD-40 helps establish a perfect barrier against humidity.
Protects against oxidation and all forms of corrosion, even under the most extreme conditions. Loosen the seized parts and unlock the mechanisms. WD is the abbreviation for Water Displacement. it's neutral for the paint and seems effective in my case because I have nothing. A forum is used to share experiences 😷

For sure growing!!! Jeep has 12000 miles on it. Always garaged.
If jeep covers this under warranty do they cover the cost to have the paint protection film redone on it as well?

i've seen it being case by case based on this forum, that's something youd have to work out with Jeep. try to work with a case manager with jeep cares, in my experience theyve been very responsive and helpful in escalating things like this. I've worked with Brooklyn, i have nothing to complain about

google "why not to use WD40"
https://lifehacker.com/when-should-...-40 is hygroscopic and,on any type of gearing.

again, glad it works for you, but there's much better options out there to consider before everyone begins spraying their $50K jeep with wd40. wd40 is one of the biggest misunderstood products yet everyone attempts using it to fix everything

Again, I can also find plenty of articles that advise against buying a Wrangler JL ... :LOL:

Seriously Andy your article is a concentrate of nonsense, the WD40 is hygroscopic and why not mixes with water ... only criticisms but no advice, when you want to kill your dog, you say that he has rabies !

Is the hinge painted after being mounted to the door? If you were to remove it ot put grease being the contact surface with the door, the paint seal/seam would be broken?

It’s painted after it’s all mounted

In my experience, there was no “paint seal” between the hinge and the door. Some say you’ll damage your paint around the hinge when you take the hinge off, but I didn’t have that issue. It’s not even painted well around the hinge, you can see some of the bare metal even with the hinge on. I don’t think you’d have an issue taking the hinge off if you wanted to put some sort of sealant on the bare metal. Toughest part is breaking the torque bolts

That would be my main concern is causing damage to the paint once the hinge is separated from the door. Don't want a noticeable area that shows a crack in the paint. Is the FluidFilm ok to use without removing hinges and breaking the paint?

Yeah it’d be fine to use fluid film without removing the hinges, I’m just not sure how far it’ll penetrate underneath the hinge. This what it looks like after the hinge is removed. The white residue is some glue that they use from the factory. It broke really easily once both bolts were out. Other than that, there’s no paint damage at all. Only concern would be the paint on the torx bolts. They really didn’t look bad at all, at least on sting Gray. I did have them powder coated black tho and I used a latex glove on my torx bit when I put them back on so it wouldn’t f up the paint

Andy,

Can you tell me which hinges you bought?

Also did you buy new bolts or reuse the existing? I would like to buy new and need to know the size.

Sure, happy to help. This is what I got, all from quadratec. They are zinc die cast hinges, they come black but can be sanded and painted
