Quote, originally posted by Toyota Spokesman Â»Toyota spokesman John Hanson said the automaker does not yet have a solution to the latest problem but is working to develop one.The problem as I see it is the pivot points on the pedal wearand cause the pedal to jam as, when traveling through it's swept area, it twists and binds.The solution as I see it: Provide lubrication!!!!Every moving part on the car should have one, IMO. Yes, standard maintenance would take a little longer. I once owned a 1976 Datsun pickup, it had grease nipples on EVERYTHING! I havn't found one on the Vibe (yet)... But from working with greasable and sealed-for-life (non-greasable) bearings at work. I can tell you that the sealed-for-life bearings ALWAYS (always) wear out before the greasable ones!!!As you can see from the lubrication chart for my bike (link in signature) it shows what and where to grease. There are no nipples though, dissasembly is required somewhat (such is motorcycle maintenance).But it's nice to have an easy list with pics to follow.2009-10 Vibe Lubrication chart (Canadian owners manual pages 11-13, 11-18, 11-19) these things need to be done once a year!http://forums.genvibe.com/zerothread?id=40166And
FYI.... If you don't know what everything in the lubrication chart is...Chassis Lubricant:Aerosol Lubricant:Not WD-40!!!!Multi-purpose Lubricant:Weatherstrip Lubricant: Works great for waterproofing your boots and leather jacket as well!
