You need to grease the bearings. The original factory grease dissipates over time. When the grease is gone, the wheel moves much more freely. In fact it will rotate on its own by moving the iPod. I need to do this also, so I hope someone can post where to get the grease at. I will try to find the site which had pictures and everything you need and post it here..

    Here is a discussion on the topic.
    Still no mention of what product to use
    other than one guy who used "marine" grease
    from Home Depot.

      I used two tiny drops of white lithium grease (available at Home Depot) deposited on the ball bearing wheel under the wheel. Works like new!
