I never heard of anyone lubricating them before, it didn't even cross my mind. What would u use to lubricate it? I think that one was beyond a lubrication fix, i'm not really even sure where it ended up.

Plastic sheaves get silicon lube. Brass or bronze gets oil or petroleum based lubes.

It's just the way it is. Metals and plastics get dry and make noise. Lube them.
