    I had hard time 2 weeks to figure out it was really possible to remove it.

    I have had 3 now, & a couple of small drops of brake fluid on the joint made the hardest one easy to move.

    Brake fluid is pretty corrosive especially for anything that's painted. Silicone spray would be safer.

    You can use fine oil made for that purpose.

    You can use the little plastic prop wrench that came with your Phantom to remove the front UV filter.
