 Sticky Half-hole

Hey all!

On Cor Anglais, how do you stop the top half of the left hand first finger plate from sticking? Its so bad at the moment that I cant do half-hole for and notes, making D#/Eb dreadful, and going from high B to C# or D sound quite painful. If I try to half hole, the top pad is stuck down so much that it falls the octave, and then it just unsticks randomly and then it jumps wildly. Also, on long notes, it will come unstuck randomly, so a note goes from intune to out of tune, and vice versa...

And rizla paper hasnt helped (cigarette paper)...and yes, I do always completely swab it out everytime.

Thanks all :) and apologies for the many, many Cor Anglais issues I've had...and cheers for always answering them ;)
