Possibly you could also use a small rifle-cleaning
brush to clean those connectors?

BTW, the metal piece in those 4-way female connector
blocks tends to crack.  I highly recommend replacing
them if there is any indication of an electrical
problem in their circuit.  I've replaced at least half
a dozen over the years in my Spit.  Buy a bunch so you
will always have a few spares on hand.
