Not sure what the substance is. It had a cover, car is NCNS, lots of dead modules. Was tracing powers (and lack thereof) and found this going on. I hadn’t thought about someone trying a graphite lube. Maybe an attempt to prevent moisture issues with the wrong stuff. It’s so dirty I think the cover may have been missing at some point.

I work at an auto body shop & as of this year has started to charge for detailing... This particular job we did however, had to call in a professional detailer because the dash and seats were a combo of muffin mix and coke a cola and created some nasty stains...

...Customer saw a little smoke, asked for me to adjust the brakes. I take a look at the wheel and notice the whole set is angled up. Jacked up the axle and peeked at the wheel seal incase of oil dripping on brakes. The seal was NOT in the hub, immediate tear down. No oil to be found in hub, removed hub found the spindle bent and inner bearings welded to it. Easy money for the spindle doctor tomorrow.

...I showed him the 3k repair order (vehicle has 220k miles- long commute between cities)and he said “I’ve been toying with the idea of getting rid of this car ...but if I get rid of it, I’m going to get rid of it on MY terms. When can you have it done?” I think he has bigger things going on then putting oil in his car lol.
