Posted · Very bad sound happening when print head is moving toward front-left. Any ideas?

I have an Ultimaker S7 that's just a few weeks old and just starting today I began to hear this bad sound when printing, and it only seems to happen when moving diagonally toward the front-left. You can hear it several times in the video linked below. The sound seems to be coming from the left side? But it's super hard to tell. Has anyone heard this sound before and knows what it might be from? Or ideas of things I can try to pinpoint the problem? Any help would be super appreciated!

 

Here's a video of the noise:

    well that just hurts my ears.. 😬

    Looks like either you need to lubricate the motion system or re align the axis..
