If you use 1der's brackets, you won't have any maintenance. Mine have held up over many years of serious off road abuse, and have yet to come loose, and they don't require you to drill any holes in the van. They are solid enough that when some slime ball tried to steal a Fiama, they were able to rip two of the three brackets off, but couldn't get the last one loose despite having a ton of leverage on it. Sometimes you need to do a little tweeking due to minor differences in how the doors are fitted, but mostly they are easy to install and have never caused me any issues............
