Probably the motor. Brushes and / bearings usual suspects or could be semi seized wheel boxes.

Lots of bits

You might be lucky and be able to sort it by re-greasing the rack.....try turning the wheel box spindles 180 deg before re-inserting the rack, and also turn that 180 deg and you might be okay
