How do you clean the oiler on a Husqvarna chainsaw?

Specially engineered chainsaw bar oil goes into the oil reservoir. As you throttle up, a worm drive engages the pump to send oil through a port that releases onto the bar. As the chain moves across the bar, it distributes the oil across the surface, reducing the friction and the heat that occurs when cutting.
