Zoom adjustment

Is there anyway to safely lubricate the zoom adjustment on my Rebel? Mine doesn't turn as smoothly as it should. There is no place in our area of western Kansas that repairs cameras.

In a word, no.  It is a very bad idea.  Your friend is UPS, so I would send it to Canon service for evluation but beware this can be expensive and may cost more than a new lens.

I was afraid of that but just in case anyone may have a different idea as to what I might try, the lens I have a problem with is the one that came with the camera...EFS 18-55mm.
But thanks for responding!
