Contrary to Item B previously listed: My MB manual states that on air bag equipped models DO NOT use any lubricating grease on the slip rings.

It is OK to grease non-air bag slip rings, but not the air bag ones. I imagine there is concern of either to bag not going off when it is supposed to or deploy going off unintentionally.
