After rebuilding the following items I'm putting all back together and unsure of the proper lubrication, any suggestions?

-wiper motor gearbox
-clutch pressure plate, throwout bearing carrier

white lithium grease for the wiper motor.

A good high temperature moly grease for the throwout bearing tube and carrier contacts.

My best experience has been with Honda(auto dealers). They sell a small plastic bottle for not very much, it works good, lasts a looooooong time and is easy to apply.

I use ordinary wheel bearing grease in the wiper gearbox, seems to work well and last longer than the factory grease. Mine has moly in it, so is black.

On the throwout tube, I don't like to use grease at all, as it seems to collect clutch dust over time, making it both abrasive and sometimes sticky. I use "dry moly" instead, which seems to work very well for me.

Dow Corning "Moly-Kote" is similar.
