 I always recommend carful removal of the old grease.
WD-40 isn't a good long term solution. It tends to
dry out ( volatiles ). I have some Moble (sp?) Delvac
that is similar to Moble One. It seem to work OK.
For cleaning, I like to use "brake clean". The only
issue here is to make sure that you use it outside
and that whatever plastic parts it comes in contact
with do not melt. It is strong stuff. If you think
there will be a problem, kerosene works well. Some
of the plastic head arms may melt while others ignore
any solvent you might try.
