I have to disagree, based on about 25 years driving vans for a living and working with other drivers doing the same, even with the amount of use a courier gives the SLD, grease made it worse as it just gums up the works, it was designed to run dry, the bearings have sufficient grease to rotate, adding grease to the track will actually reduce the friction on the bearing making it into a slide not a wheel.

If unsure just ring Fiat or whoever dealer for advice, if it's making a noise then there will be a reason, lack of grease on the track will not be it.
