Their is an article on the front page about socket sealing that tells you how to romove the top part. I think you pull the CAM out, but don't hold me to that.

You don't necessarily have to remove the top. I took some silicone and placed it on cardboard, and used a toothpick to carefully place the silicone beneath the moving parts. Got a tight seal and didn't gum it up.
