It's literally right in the latch in the door. With the window UP, spray all around the inside of the latch and that usually does it.

Oh, you lazy boy! Get your butt up and get a job and go buy yourself a service manual!

Will, it's in the friggin' door where the latch is that contacts the post on the door frame -- the thing that holds your door closed. I just don't think you need a picture to find it!

It doesnt take all that much. Just One shot (half a second) of lubricant.

It actually came back to haunt me one year later.
