Schwintek lubrication

Are you supposed to lubricate the gears on a schwintek slide out system? I can't see how to get to the mechanism.

The motors are on the inside of the slide out top and bottom.

How do you access them? I tried bending the weatherstripping back but can't see the motors.

You do not need to lubricate the motors as they are sealed. What you are lubricating are the guide blocks and track rollers. You should be able to see the tops of the motors so you can remove the hold down screw if necessary to push in the slide, but down where the tracks are, is where the guide blocks and roller are located. 2018 and later LCI Schwintek advice is do not lubricate any part of the slide mechanism but keep the tracks clean.
