Lubricating (Used) Replacement Wiper Transmission?

Following "plastic-part-failure" induced angst and rage ($0.10 non-replaceable part failed on a $400 assembly), I have ordered a used replacement from Pat at Potomac German Auto in Frederick, MD.

Question at this point, is, how do I lubricate the linkage sockets in order to get as much as possible out of this replacement?

Does anyone have an advice on whether to lubricate, how to lubricate and what to lubricate with?

Removal of the broken assembly was rather straightforward ... any tips on installation? Alignment of the wiper arms?

Have reviewed the CDROM ...
