Default looking for pinch roller - Sony TC-KE500S

I haven't used my TC-KE500S cassette deck in a while. I just tried playing a cassette but heard a crinkling noise. The transport was damaging my tape. I tried another tape. Same result. Fortunately it didn't eat the tape!

I checked the capstan and pinch roller and both were clean. I cleaned them anyway but it didn't make a difference.

Two possibilities occur to me: a bad pinch roller or an alignment issue. I don't have access to a mirror cassette. The roller appears glazed so I figure that's the likely cause. It measures 12.8 mm x 7mm. The hub is 7.9mm wide with 2mm hole for the axle.

An Internet search turned up Studio Sound Electronics but they don't list that size.

Referrals to other online sources would be appreciated!
