Default Winch Maintenance

I have my bumper an winch off for some cosmetic work. And while the winch is off and rope is off the drum I would like to do some maintenance on it.

It's a Warn 9,5ti. But I cannot find any info online or on Warns website about routine service/maintenance and lubrication. I got to believe there are things that should be done every few years, like dis-assembly and cleaning and re-greasing, checking the brake for wear and how to measure it for replacement.

Anyone know where I can find this info?

I was told it's maint. free. However, it would be simple enough to check and clean any corrosion on the solenoids though.

I've had my 9.5ti apart and it's not like it's really a servicable winch. At least not for the average Joe.

If needed, I do have the wiring diagrams of the solenoids if you do decide to pull it all apart. There are lots of little wires and such in there.
