Different noise from Pan, not clicking but a squeal

Not clicking, more of a metallic squeal. Every time it moves.

Anything I can do to eliminate it (short of not having the camera move)?

That sounds like the normal operation movement of a Pan. As you mentioned, turning off motion tracking is what you would have to do to stop the noise.

Do you know where the noise is being generated? I was hoping some WD-40 or something …

It’s coming from the motor that pans the camera. I highly doubt any amount of WD-40 (or any other lube for that matter) would quiet the motor. Not only that, you may run the risk of voiding your warranty if it goes badly.

So it is the motor itself. Thanks!
