Default Nikon 4500 - Stiff swivel mechanism

I have been experiencing a slightly grainy feel when rotating the lens mechanism on my camera. It's never been to the beach and I 'm always storing it in its case.

Is anyone else experiencing a problem when rotating the lens ?

Any thoughts on how to clean it other than sending it to Nikon ?

Thanks :?

I had the same experience with mine, so I took a spray can of WD-40 with the extension nozzle on it and gave a couple short sprays to the swivel area. It smoothed right up. Ypu'll have some residual lubricant keep migrating to the adjacent surfaces of the camera body for a few hours but I just kept wiping that off with a soft cloth.
It stops eventually. Hope this helps. Cheers.
