  1. I know! It's indeed hard to know where the sound is coming from. 

    I checked the github and found the PDF's for the sliding blocks and the assembly guide.

    There I saw the sliding blocks only house copper bushings and the belt tensioning spring.

    I can't imagining the creaking comes from those components. 

    I'll try loosening the stepper motor mount and see what changes.

    Thanks a bunch for the pointers!

    I hope the bearing replacement goes smooth!

  2. Hello!

    My Ultimaker 2 makes a creaking noise when the head is moved on the Y axis. I think the sound comes from the ball bearing at the far side of the left panel. This doesn't have an impact on print quality, but it doesn't sound healthy.

    What specifications should I keep in mind when ordering a replacement ball bearing? It seems to have a ridge on one side to prevent it from being pushed through the side panel.

    I assume I can slide the axis out to the right side when I loosen the screws on the pulleys.
