If that's it, take the screw out, coat everything with a bit of heavy
grease or LPS-3 and reinstall.
Heavy grease, Jim?  Really?  Should it be Dielectric grease?

Below is from Wikipedia.

Dielectric grease is a *nonconductive* grease. As such, it does not enhance
the flow of electrical current. Dielectric grease is, however, often
applied to electrical
particularly those containing rubber gaskets, as a means of lubricating and
sealing rubber portions of the connector.

The widest use of dielectric grease is in high-voltage connections
associated with spark plugs. The grease is applied to the rubber boot of
the plug wire. This helps the rubber boot slide onto the ceramic insulator
of the plug. The grease also acts to seal the rubber boot, while at the
same time preventing the rubber from becoming stuck to the ceramic.
Generally spark plugs are located in areas of high temperature, and the
grease is formulated to withstand the temperature range expected.
