I'm looking to lubricate some nylon gears in a servo motor, and online sources tell me silicone lubricants are one of the best ways to go.
However, when I opened up the servo, I found that it already has lubrication in place, most probably a mineral oil-based one. It looks dry though, and I'm inclined to re-lubricate it anyway.
Would having the two types of lubricant in there be a cause for concern? Should I exert effort to clean it out first?
Conversely, would there be any issues if I apply a mineral oil-based lubricant to gears that are known to have silicone oil?
