ZR Bridge - Noise when push the arm down


I have a Ibanez S470DXQM ('06 I believe, made in Korea). I got it as used guitar. Still I love it.

The condition at the bridge is not so great though, one screw is rusted, one string lock block (inside the saddle) is stucked, etc. But one problem that is annoying is whenever I uses the arm bar, the noise occurs as there are some friction somewhere.

My english is not really good, so I'm not able do describe it clearly. Well I've upload the video taken with my cellphone instead, please take a look.


(I can't post link yet due to the number of posts I've created... so please replace the youtube word with the proper youtube url :-) ).

I've been living with it for a few years, and just decided that I want to get rid of it (along with the other problems I mentioned above). Just feel regret not to have it works properly for a long time.

Does anyone has any suggestion ?

Thank you,

One more thing, I've replaced the trem arm with Schaller-made one from Steward-Macdonald.
