1. You won't damage the posts cleaning them unless you take a stone or dremel or something to it.

2. Why are you so crazy about cleaning the posts. Guitars age naturally and the tone changes with it. Let things ride, patina is good.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

no i ment does the little metal things that receive the vibration move, for example: to adjust the pickup height

the reason i worried is that the posts rust if u dont clean them

Rust? Are you storing it in a musty basement or steamroom or something? I've never had pole pieces rust. My older guitars have a nice dark patina on them, sort like a silver plate that needs to be polished.

For rust I would use a soft wire bristle brush and just make as few passes as needed. You won't hurt the tone any, they're magnets and the smoothness of the top isn't all that important.
