In that case, shoot the cylinder with brake cleaner to flush it out. 
All *it* needs is a little graphite.  It's the rest of the mechanism
that needs the big clean and fresh lithium - the part inside the trunk.

Oh, and do it over some paper towels or a pan, so all the goop and gunk
doesn't wind up in the trunk all over your fine surfing or skiing
duds... (or your microfiche reader?)
