I had one that was rubbing and adjusting the play at the screw got rid of the noise.
It had double the end play of 2 other SOTAs I also have.

I would try the screw adjustment first and if that doesn’t work, taking it apart as suggested
is the final step.

Default Sota Sapphire rebuild.

New motors are readily available directly from HURST. Just go to their website and punch in the part number from your current motor. I just ordered one and currently rebuilding my Sota GEM. This was the first turntable model ever made by Sota, it preceded the Sapphire!
