Cargo door hinges squeal

I've try so far wd40 and 3in1 on the hinges
to get rid of the big and heavy castle door type squeal
with no result so far. I'm thinking about putting
some greasers, just like the hinges for the
tire carrier.

Any miracle product ?

I'm thinking also about contacting Pixar and
selling the sound effect, it's really spooky .

Oil is too light... Take out the hinge bolts one at a time(no need to remove door) and thoroughly coat them in bearing/axle grease. I do it about once a year as the grease will dry up over time.
