    Zinc Oxide grease is what's used I believe.
    Should be able to get it from an Auto shop.

    Caig DeOxit...assuming you're talking about the potentiometer. One "squirt" goes a long way!

    White Lithium grease is what is used from most factories...It doesn't break down and encapsulates dirt instead of gathering it.

    Sorry.... inter-country Terminology difference I think.
    Lithium grease contains Zinc Oxide.
