Sounds like its coming from the lifter-motor-gearbox.
Can this gearbox be opened up at all? Is there any way of adding grease?

They're riveted together; but you can drill the rivets out and replace with machine screws and nuts. Usually one or more of the gears is stripped and there's not much you can do but replace the entire assembly.

No need to replace the entire assembly. Steve at PBR can service the assembly for a modest fee.
