If I apply lubricant to the outside of my vent cables will the lubricant work its way past the spiral wound wire and lubricate the inside?

Probably not. Go to a motorcycle shop and buy a cable luber. It along with your favorite aerosol lube and straw should do the trick.

put the entire cable in some penetrating oil (soak it) -something like DB blaster -works great...

I had good luck with spraying them with Deep Creep by Seafoam.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

I took mine out and hung them up and used the 3n1 oil.
