I used to have that problem, try and tighten all the nuts and bolts, and put some packer in the spring joint.

Best thing to use is a silicon based lubricant (hardwear store) or I have used a silicon based furniture polish

You can't anyway, it's blocked on here.

Agreed with Jason, silicon or graphite based lubricants are your best bet.

Indeed.

And silicone spray is the best I have ever used. Will fix it in no time. Spray it on all the moving parts and joints and go bocking. Once its worn into the joints should help no end. I found spraying them a bit before I bocked really helped the plastic bushings to last.

Water based lube is meant for short term use and will dry out very quickly so although it is OK for a quick fix I would use something more permanent

Also it will was out when you bock in the rain  :Claugh:
