Saitek X55 joystick squeaking.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope someone may be able to help.

 

My X55 joystick has been getting very noisy recently and quite stiff to operate. Has anyone any tips on the best way of lubricating the mechanics and what to use? I haven't tried opening it up yet in the hope that I can get some advice from someone here who may know the the best way of going about it.

Is this the stick?

If so, then a bit of silicone oil, (doesn't attack rubber or plastics) should help.I had an old Cyborg 3D stick where the spring was external and the oil cured the squeaks.
