I have written a maintenance guide for the R-Trem which should help with this. Apart from cleaning and lubricating especially using teflon washers (you'll find them on ebay) between tuning knobs and housing help a lot.

If I buy teflon washers on eBay, what size am I looking for? Better yet, do you know of a link?

No ebay link, I've bought these (the M3 version, for the specs)
