For the past three months mine has too.

Interestingly enough for me, my wheel seemed to move pretty wheel from the start, but over time (I've had it for a year) it's gotten it'd say 'loosened up' and moves much better.

Underneath that there is a black plastic gear, near which there should be a very small medal piece sticking out (so it hits the gear ). This is what causes the gear like movement -- remove it, and you will have smooth scrolling .
Yeh, i made that breakthrough a few weeks ago too. Just an extra tip, when you screw the screws back in, don't screw the 2 bottom screws that hold the faceplate too tight so that the scroll wheel moves smoother.

isn't that medal ring to prevent the wheel from moving around when its inside your pocket? my friend did this to his sansa and he said after that modification the volume goes up and down and skips songs while in his pocket.

Someone should make a guide, it works great for me (at least for last few minutes).

Dielectric grease would work if things need lubricated. Dielectric grease simply means "nonconductive grease." Mine gets a little scratchy feeling after awhile.You can get it at any auto parts store in little tubes. Just a dab will do.

In general, you are right. However, you can do this in moderation. I used a drop of oil on the wheel from the inside and it did help. Just don't use too much so that it gets everywhere.
