High pitch ear piercing squeal up plus 2

Hi guys I have only had the up plus 2 for a couple of weeks and now it is making a really annoying high pitch squeal when it's printing. Sounds like finger nails on a blackboard. I'm not sure if it is coming from the nozzle or the bed. It does seem worse when the bed is moving to the front. Is there something I can oil or use some silicone spray on?..cheers in advance ;)

I seem to remember that the ball slides require white lithium grease, but do not quote me on that.
Silicone oil can cause galling on any iron surface that rubs. I would avoid it.

Turn your printer off and move the parts around manually. Most likley it is the X axis (front to back) remove the blank platform, then the arm cover and as previous post, squirt some lithium grease onto these linear rails.
