Hi, Does anyone know if the accel pedal linkage pivot at the top of the pedal is all plastic? And if so, what lubricant have you used on it with success?
Mine creaks with every movement, I dont want to put mineral based oil on it if its all plastice for obvious reasons, is there a recommended lubricant?

Best regards David

Yes, I was about to use WD40 when I thought it might be better to use a thicker lubricant, I have a tube of silicone grease and I might try that first tonight.
Its the same stuff, just thicker.....

Best regards David
