turns out that's exactly what it was! thankfully the drive mechanism separates
from the rest of the drive with screws. i had some head and disk cleaner
(alcohol) in a spray can, so i just sprayed it on the parts and worked them
back and forth until they were loose. i've no grease, but at least its working
just fine now.
