Guys, it has to be grease. Why?

WD-40 will run, and get into the actual circuit and pot. So will oil. This is bad.

Use non-conductive grease on the pot's wheel AND the plastic arm.

STREDIT: Thanks, wtrplayr.

just place some WD-40 on the
non conductive parts and only on the
part that allows the pedal to move up and down.
its not that hard.

Grease. Ignore all the half-assed solutions and do the job properly the first time.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

I've never had a wah pedal squeak at the pot. It's more than likely at the pivot point for the pedal, which brings me back to my original answer: oil.

Dude, you can't put oil in, on, or around anywhere that it can run into the pot. If you do, it will probably conduct the electricity going INTO the pot, which could be bad.

Contact cleaner can go into pots because it evaporates.

So unless you want him to fry his wah, he needs to use NON CONDUCTIVE grease on the pivot point, the plastic gear, and the plastic arm.
