Squeaky iBook hinge.. - Mac Portable

The lid on my original iceBook sounds/feels like it's going to snap off when I open it. The noise from the hinges is terrible. Loosening the s near the hinge doesn't really work, and putting oil (tried WD40 so far) around where the lid bracket goes into the iBook casing eases it off, but only for a couple of days. Any ideas?...

    Open the iBook swiftly, with your hand in the middle of the display,
    where the closing mechanism sits. Do not open it grabbing at the edges
    or elsewhere, this will cause slight warpage -> squeak! My iBook
    squeaked like a nest of rats when I got it, but it is now entirely gone.
    No oil used.
