The white gear linkage to the new cog seems to rotate freely, the worm drive screw to the motor wind seems to rotate fine in housing when taken apart but rubs a little, I imagine the bearing on the shaft holds the alignment where it should provided there is no play in the bearing case. 2007 x3 93k miles I was on the ground bleeding the front roadside brake with the engine running, and i heard a ticking from the general direction of the bell housing maybe a little further back.
