Anyone know of a lube procedure for the sliding door? We've noticed that it's getting harder to open.

Could you post some pictures of these spots?Having owned a couple E-series with sliding doors over the past 15 years, one of the first things I examined closely after getting my Transit was were it was lubed....there is only one place, a big glob of white grease in the sliding track at the top right side, in that deep well above the passengers head...lubing the "plastic ball" straight up from the opening handle. No grease whatsoever on the bottom track or in the middle track.
One small exception is the plastic "clamping latch" (same as the door latches) in the middle of the door, at the back end. A glob of grease on that does wonders. That black spring loaded thing back there?...don't lube that thing. Lube those two spots and it should slide like butter...if not, then perhaps the plastic balls (wheels) in the middle and/or the bottom are getting threadbare.
