I would also recommend to not use WD40 for this. It can perish rubber (seals in the bearings) and can damage some thermoplastics (used for the cages on some bearings). Indeed, when we are testing the thermoplastics for our housings, WD40 is one of the main chemicals we use, and I do see that it can degrade the screw bosses.
