Well, there we have it!

I would not advice you to open then lens yourself unless you are very familiar with lenses and the precision mechanics involved. Do not try to lube it without opening the lens, it will only make mattes worse. Just buying the proper tools, oil and grease would probably cost you more than the lens itself. Just sell it cheaply to someone who knows how to fix lenses or is prepared to leave it for a CLA. Or leave it for a CLA yourself. However, looking for another lens is probaly the most economically sound option.
