Profurl Top Swivel has be come hard to swivel

The top swivel on my furler has become very hard to turn. It not wrapping the halyard and its very stiff when its down at deck level when I'm bending on the sail.

The only thing I've found is to rinse it with fresh water to remove salt and dirt. The boat has only been in fresh water, so that strikes off salt as a problem. Here are my questions, but I cannot get Profurl to respond.

1) Where/how to rinse with fresh water? Is there a port to jet water in to clean?

2)If there is a way that fresh water rinsing makes a difference, if follows that the same process should allow some form of lubrication to be entered into the swivel.

I think this thread will interest.
It includes a description of a procedure alternating water and WD-40 Silicone that worked for me. At least temporarily. I have no illusions that soon enough a maintenance kit replacement of the internal parts will not be needed.
