Panoramic roof lube 2002 C230

My daughter's pano roof needs to be lubricated.
I have the MB service sheet that shows where to lube it.
I have the 001 989 14 51 rail grease specified but one area calls for A001 989 50 51("Special sliding roof sliding compound"), "Drip one drop lubricant each into guide rail at points marked with arrow".
I've attached an image showing the points.
Does anyone know what this lubricant is?
Is there an alternate I could use here?

Thanks, Dan

Mercedes-Benz Gleitpaste (Sliding Paste)? That's the only compound used for sliding roofs that I know of. You can be sure though that you need to use what they specify for the roof. Can't use anything else I'm afraid. Too many stories of people thinking they can use alternatives with unfavorable results.

Spezial-Gleitmittel fur Glasschiebedacher.
Special sliding compound for glass sliding roofs.
Comes in 30 ml (1 fl oz) container. Not sure if smaller packages are available as it is very expensive even though it is made in the USA.
Probably best to go to dealer or someone who has a container because 30 ml would last for many lifetimes.
Compound is also good at eliminating plastic noises.

Thanks for the replies.
I'll see if the dealer will put in the drops as described in the instructions.
I'll let you know how it goes.
