lubricating the cd mechanism

ive struck this ,or a similar problem quite a bit recently when checking cd stackers, in most instances i niote the owners have tried lubricating the internals with normal car grease, this of course stuiffens when cold, causing the internals to labour when moving, if u want to lubricate the delicate internals, i would reccomend a white lithium grease, it doesnt seem to stiffen at all when cold, spray lubricants are not the best as they can continue to drip and get on the surface of the cd causing it to skip.even on the laser lens causing problems there.
