Diek,
I would use silicone grease on the rubber O-rings rather than light grease or oil. Depending on the rubber compound (which appears to be very soft) petroleum based oil or grease may attack the rubber. Silicone (Dow Corning or Parker O ring) is generally very benign with most rubber/synthetic materials.
