Dust contaminated

C-3PO paralyzed by dust contamination.

"Master Owen has sent me to find four new vaporators for the homestead. Unfortunately I've got such a bad case of dust contamination I can barely move."

Dust contamination, also known as metal fatigue,[1] was a malfunction that afflicted droids. When encrusted with dust or sand, mechanical movement was severely hindered.

Oil baths were usually the solution to clearing the droid parts affected.
