|Today my right shifter started to make asquawking noise when I downshift. Is there a specific type of lube or mtnc that should be performed to stop this, or is this a sign of more bad stuff to come?

|The only solution is to replace it with Campy. Sorry, I couldn't resist.|

|Check the cable guide under the bottom bracket. When energy drink dribbles and dries down there the shifter feels stiff and "squawks." Remove it with *really hot* water, then relube with a little triflow.|

|Went to check it more closely this morning, shifted it one time and the frayed cable popped out of the shifter frayed and severred. New cable coming up.

|Beat me to it... I was gonna tell you to check your cable and housing...
Replace your housing while you are at it. It's cheap. I always use new housing when I replace a cable. It a cable snaps, it can often be from a burr in the housing. But get new housing while you are at it. And since you are doing your rear cable, you might as well do the front too.
