Yeah, but my question is whether you can (or are going to) put a  
washer on the hinge (the side with ribbon cable). If you only gong to  
lube it, it would be a mistake. As I remember it, the screw that holds  
the spring, looked like it would pop easily over time no matter. It's  
a design flaw. By not removing the spring, cleaning the dried lube  
off, putting a quality lubricant and a washer, you will risk popping  
that spring eventually. It'ou might buy yourself 6 months to a year of  
moderate use.
