Raymarine ST4000 Autopilot....

I have a Raymarine ST4000 Autopilot that is starting to sound like a bag of rusty nails. I've stripped it down and the problem seems to be a general lack of lubrication between the two rotating surfaces. This unit is of the type that bolts onto the wheel. Peering through there seems to be a host of small wheels and cogs but as they look plastic I am wodering waht would be best to use.....Silicon, Mr Sheen ??

Does anyone have a manual with/or any recommendations ???

I would also like to ad in passing that here in Australia it is impossible to contact Raymarine with any queries as they do not list a phone number anywhere on their web site and prefer to direct any queries to the that's what I call great service !
