I just got a used code 1, did all the updates and it's obvious I need to service some of the encoders by spraying them with fader lub. The only problem is that I can't seem to be able to take off the encoder caps. If I try wiggling them off, the whole encoder moves (i can see that when i take off a side panel) and it feels like something is going to break if I apply more force (I've taken caps off over types of harware without issues) . They are black with 4 vertical slits on silver shafts (the silver shafts seem to be more part of the cap than of the encoder.)
I have the impression that if I spray without removing the caps, the stuff isn't going to get anywhere...
Is there a trick? a solution?
