I posted a thread just over a month ago about my squeaky hand-wired Vox. I thought it was the rack and pinion and some people suggested I buy white lithium grease to lube it up. After finally buying it today and attempting to fix it, I realised that the rack and pinion wasn't the reason for the squeak. I'm 100% sure because I disconnected the rack and pinion by pushing the screwed in piece of plastic that keeps them together. I moved the wah pedal up and down while those parts were disconnected and the squeak continued.
I am now beginning to wonder if the squeak is coming from screws that connect the pedal to it's base. Anyone know what the problem could be if it's not the rack and pinion?
lol

Its most likely the pivot pin that is causing the squeak.
Whatever mechanism is used to tighten the pivot action probably needs a little lube
NOT WD-40, use Lithium grease. Just a little.
