Empty Service Maintenance Kits Latex 570

HP Recommended
Latex 570
macOS 10.14 Mojave

Our printer has been making some interesting sounds lately and so I did some looking through the info on the Web Server and found this:

 

Service Maintenace Kit #1     3%

Service Maintenace Kit #2    0%

Service Maintenace Kit #3    12%

 

We just replaced the maintenance cartridge and it says it is at 100%. 

Is this something I need to be worried about?

What do these Kits do and what are the part numbers for them?

From the looks for the service manual, those counters go from 0 to 100%, so your kits appear to be very low usage. These are technician installed kits that replace common wear items.  If you are getting noise it could be a dry/dirty carriage rod.

Our carriage rod lubrication is at 12%

At what point would you suggest cleaning and relubricating it?

Also in the manual, it says to clean the rod with 95% Ethanol, we have a barrel of 90% Ethanol at our plant, would there be anything wrong with using that instead?
