 +Step 2: Place a small amount, (appx. 2mm sq. volume), of the lubricant onto a cotton swab. Move the joystick to the far left and lubricate the exposed part of the ball with the swab. Repeat this process for the right, up, and down directions.

 +Step 3: Move the joystick in every direction to spread the lubrication evenly and remove the excess lubricant with a tissue. The kit includes approximately enough lubricant to repeat the process ten times

 +This should amend any friction in the joystick system, however if it does not there may be some other issue with the joystick. In that instance contact Applied Scientific Instrumentation for more information or instructions on the joystick system.
