Hp HP LaserJet 5MP

HP laserjet 5MP

I have a HP laserjet 5MP and it has just developed a mechanical fault. On start up and when feeding paper through I get a very loud vibration noise. When I push the paper guide plate (the metal plate just in front of and below the paper in the top loading slot)down firmly the noise stops. I havent got a manual and have dismantled the unit as far as I am able but cant fix the probelm. Any ideas?
I would suspect a broken clutch on the MF roller doing it. If you examine it (it's to the left of the roller), you'll probably see a crack where the spring sticks through a hole in the plastic. There is a replacement kit available on this site.
