C8 Drive motor problem

Hello all,
I have a C8 Deluxe that I bought new a couple of years ago. I detect a vibration comming from the RA motor. I notice it the more when doing solar observing but lately it can be seen all the time at higher magnifications at night. I do a lot of double star observing now so I tend to push the power on a regular basis more so than before. It is very annoying.

I run off a 12V DC car battery so low voltage shouldn't be the issue. Anyone have any suggestions???
