Yes, I was aware of that, after that part of the mechanism was loose
and been working for half an hour, I removed as much as possible using a
few tipped cotton buds and applied some light machine oil.
As the rest of the machine was working more or less fine, I greased and
oiled the other points as well.
Only the keyboard T levers needed some lubrication, as some of them
did not move freely. I used a little bit of silicone oil which I
applied with a very small brush and after a few movements their movements
was much better.
