I put a couple of external circlips on the post above the roller and lubed it with spray white grease. Has been squeak free for well over a year.

If that's the case, it didn't work that way on my driver door. The roller works it way all the way up the post and stays there. Then it would stop rotating due to the friction between it and the top of the post. I would lower it and lube it only to have to redo the process constantly.
Nothing has worked to stop the squeek. Not lithium grease, silicone spray, numerous other spray lubes, nothing worked except WD-40 and it only lasted about a week. Since installing my rubber o-rings it has been quiet.

Glad to hear it. Mine was the same. I tried everything but it always came back until I put the washer in.

I went with an HNBR O-ring. Every lube under the sun & it still ends up squealing. So far no noise. It just works!
what size and from where?
