Lubricating Electric Pop Top?

Has anyone lubricated the moving parts in their electric pop top?

Mine has been making more noise when raising and lowering than it used too. Almost sounds like it's struggling. Wondering if it needs to be lubricated. The drivers side raises slightly faster or at least rises and lowers sooner than the passenger side. Not too much but maybe uneven enough to cause a little binding?

If so, what did you lubricate and what product did you use?

Thanks,

Mike

SMB suggested silicon spray when I picked up my vehicle. I'd avoid oils or graphite.
