I'd put it down to the sea air/water but that's just me!

It might be worth reaming that bearing out a tad to prevent the same thing happening again. I've seen some vehicles where they are a quite slack. I guess they must leak a little then but the small amount of exhaust will soon be drawn back into the engine and consumed.

I suppose as a service you could unclip the rod, give the bearing a squirt of oil and work the lever a bit to ensure it's kept free.

Not sure I'd want to go oiling something that's hidden behind a heatshield. The shield implies it's going to get hot-maybe enough to set fire to the oil.

Maybe teflon spray would be a better idea.

Again i've heard good reports about Milk Mouse but don't know where in the UK (Or Ireland) that sells it. I contacted the manuf. in the USA and they said they'd ship it world wide

It's just a wee squirt down a bearing, Nos4.

Yeah but anything you put down there's going to burn off PDQ anyway-that's why I suggested teflon spray.
