Default Door Noise

Searched the forums and didn't find an answer so....

When I doors open all the way I get a loud noise like the metal is rubbing. I have put grease around the hinges and no luck. It only makes the noise when the door is fully open.

Do the hinges need to get replaced?
Do I need to take the door off and grease the hinges?

sorry man missed this one. when you greased the door hinges did you spray the the black bar that goes into the door as well? Also hit them again and keep opening and closing the doors about 15 times to get the grease to set in them.

Rather than grease, try a good penetrating lubricant like WD40. Grease is too viscous to get into small cracks and tight spaces.
