Squeaky Pop Top

We got a CCV mid top installed last November. So far we love it, except it has developed a horrible nasty squeak when raising or lowering the top.

Do any of you have a favorite lube to use? I'm leaning towards spraying some white lithium grease in the tracks, except I'm worried that it may harden and get really dirty. Maybe I'll just put some gloves on and rub some bearing grease in the tracks.

Any suggestions?

I'm of the opinion that you contact CCV as a first line of defense.
Regarding the question, I use Garage Door lube for just about everything these days.

Coming from the tracks or from the pivot point on the arms? Mine creaks more than squeaks, I like dry chain lube penetrating oil for stuff like pivot points or hinges. I would think either lithium or bearing grease would be good for the tracks
