Friction hinge

Anyone have any idea how to loosen up this one leaf of the friction hinge?

Iíve spent hours searching the forum but canít find an answer. The door operates perfectly with the screws from the one leaf removed. The door worked great last year.

Iíve tried lubing it up with silicon WD40.

I tried raising all the stabilizers to make sure sure there was no twist causing it to bind.

No adjustment screws on this model.

Going to try try on blaster today.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hope the picture works as this is my first post.

Are there set screws on the ends of the pins? Lose the WD 40, try a silicon spray.

Sorry. Wd40 silicon spray. Supposed to be a silicon lubricant. No set screw.
