We have a sliding shower door, only 3 years old which does not slide nicely.
It is a simple aluminium runner affair with no rollers. At times it
screeches and at best it scroops. If we get hold of the door above half way
up it also jams when opened. Gripping the handle below the half way point is
the only way to ensure it does not jam.
I tried lubricating the runners with silicon grease but this results in
greasy black gunge running down the glass. SWMBO want me to change the doors
but as they are tiled in with the tiles covering the screws that hold it
together this will mean major work.
Any suggestions of a lubricant that will make them run more smoothly and not
produce the black greasy stains?
