Noisy double barrel hinges

We installed cafe doors using a double barrel hinge so it closes from both ways. I know your supposed to oil the springs but can't figure out how. Any help would be appreciated

If the top of the hinge is open or has a crevice leading into the hinge I put a few drops of oil on top. If the top is closed then I spray the moving slot on the side with WD-40. Just be ready to wipe up drips. If you really want to lubricate the hinges well remove one and you can lay it flat or hold it upside down to get oil inside. Then reinstall the hinge and remove the next one for oiling.

Thank you for your help. It was closed at both ends and I couldn't figure out how to get it in to the spring.
