Andersen Sliding doors squeek constantly


We installed three and they work great except for constant squeeks at the rubber weather stripping that runs verticle.
As soon as the glass runs over it upon opening there is a loud squeek. It is most apparent immediatly when opening. Any ideas?

A little dab of vegatable oil or similar on the vinyl will hush it.

Let us know how long the oil keeps the door squeaks down.

We're applying it today. Difficult to get to this thin piece of weather stripping. I think I will only be able to coat one side of it as the other side is not accessable.
