  3. Draw a tiny bit of lubricant in the syringe. Insert needle in the hole where the lens holder screw was. Put the needle in the hole a short way and put a tiny bit of lubricant in the hole. The last photo shows the gear you are lubricating with the camera taken apart, you do not have to take your camera that far apart to lubricate the shutter.

    • Before you put the camera back together, check the shutter. if you have it repaired, it will make a positive "CLICK, CLICK" noise. Because the AE-1 has an electronic shutter, you must ensure the batteries are in your camera before you test it. If it test good, put the screw back in the lens holder and put the beauty piece and 4 screws back. FIXED

As the author stated you do not have to completely disassemble the unit to make this repair.

I make a slight bend in the needle so it has a little bit of a hook to it. the gear that gets dry is slightly below the upper wind side lens mount screw hole. With the curved needle you can push the needle in the hole and feel around a bit till you feel the gear move. put just a very tiny drop of oil on that gear. might take a couple tries. better to do very little as to much oil will leak into the mirror box and shutter causing a oil to get on the shutter and focusing screen. Then it will have to be taken to a camera repairman for service.
