sticky Sony 3.5" drive

Found in an HP 9114A. Doesn't want to accept a diskette; it doesn't
move the diskette down when fully inserted, but pushing the eject
button ejects the diskette. Removed the drive from the 9114A, and
pulled its cover; its heads appear to be intact and in place. I'm
wondering what I need to clean and re-lubricate (and how, and what
sort of lubricant to use); I'm thinking Tony Duell has told us all
before but doggone if I can turn it up in my searches.
