IIRC, that is the exit rollers. Like most rubber rollers, they harden
over time, causing them to start groaning as paper passes thru.

I don't think it is something you have to fix ASAP. If you ignore it,
eventually paper will stop exiting and jam.

I repaired mine with a kit from (I also did the
pickup rollers at the same time).

Mine was for an Apple LaserWriter IINT, but its the same engine.
