PA 14 360 drive squeaks when pedaling. Sounds like cable rubbing. What type lubricant do I need to use. Could there be a problem with drive?

Grease the top cable - when they rub on the drum they make an audible sound on some drives - also watch the adjustment viodeos on the support page for 360- - adjust global and idler cables in-sync - here: https://www.hobie.com/support/mirage-pro-angler-14-with-360-technology/

Any grease that is thick enough it will stick around, not WD 40 or Hobie lube. Marine grease is best, do not worry about using the wrong grease and voiding warrant or damaging cable or plastic.
