I use a teflon lubricant, and I use it on the antenna too.

I wouldn't suggest WD40, its mostly a solvent, but it may work with ocean water. WD stands for water displacing. You should use OWD40, ocean water displacing

...or SWD40 for "seawater displacing".

Unless you have an ML, in which case you need AWD40!!!:p

Powered graphite is the best stuff to use for this application.

Thanks all

I'll have a look for the Powdered Graphite today. Is it available in some kind of spray form where I just put in the keyhole?

I did not pick up on the fact that you are in Japan. I don't know what kind of car parts discount shop they have there. Look for one - one this side of the ocean you can find this at places like Advance Auto Parts, etc.. I don't know if you have WalMarts but they may have it.
