It was slick for a month or so , now it is like turning it through grit.

Sound's like the o ring has broke,Just remove the black hub not the Brass insert.
The o ring is very fine and if it was a bit dry to start with may have bound up and snapped.
No need to replace just put some grease inside the black hub and replace.
Job done.
