I used copper grease that you would use on brakes applied with a finger! Stopped the squeak and has not returned 4+ months.

Where did you apply the grease, was this with the exhaust in place or did you need to get to the internals?

Was applied externally to the rods on the flap actuators. You can easily push the rods in and they spring out to cover the whole length. Very easy to access on V8, not sure about other models. It actually still squeaked a little to begin with but worked its way in after a couple of drives the squeak was gone

After getting fed up of applying copper gease to mine every couple of months, I've just had the rear box changed on my R - back to normal now!

I think some of you think it is the vac operated rod that is the problem. It is not that as Tel has pointed out, it is the actual butterfly flap valve inside the exhaust pipe. It is the 2 pivots that seize, actually the same as my Ducati multistrada system. The copper slip needs spraying into these 2 pivot points to lubricate. These get very hot from the exhaust gasses & seize. The copper slip is good for over 2000 degrees heat. WD40 nil. Or you could just disconnect them & jam the butterflies open & be naughty all the time. You know you want to.
