Default Marantz CD84 grease lube

Ive tried to searching but I cant find what greae/lube is suitable for the tray. The old grease was a thick grey looking grease. the CDM-1 mech is japanese version of the CDM-1.

Thanks
Regards
Sam

I've always used Electrolube SPG (Special Plastics Grease) for most CD repairs. I see its available from Amazon,

For the tray, I use dry silicon spray as it doesn't attract the dust and dry up.
Silicon based furniture polish was recommended by Grundig UK.

Thanks Mooly. That looks a great product. I'll see if i can find it around on ebay.

Thanks Jon,I use a Silicon based oil on the CD rails which seems to really help the disc track. Maybe a grease based form might suit

The tray appears to be metal or plastic the rollers not sure. I cant get rid of all the old grey grease? would that matter

Hi Mooly,
You can merge the post if you like. I found the SPG35L at ELement14.

This is the current spray i use on the CD rails - Silicone Spray Lubricant.

Any spray, whether teflon or silicon based, contains more or less oil which might destroy MBR rubber belts and O rings, so any surface in contact with rubber should be cleaned, degreased and left dry. Dry silicone spray is good on plastic cogs, although grease lubricant for printers is better because it reduces wear. For sliding surfaces in metal, silicone spray does not work well because the thin layer wears off quickly. Grease is much better there.
