HP 4100 drive assembly or fuser drive gear

Had 4100 making grinding noise. Replaced fuser which worked, but noticed some gear dust. The dust was white as opposed to black like the fuser gear.

So I want to replace that gear. I didn't see it referenced in the manual. Can I replace just that fuser drive gear or am I better off doing the whole printer drive assembly?

Thanks much.
If the printer is working without grinding noise, do not bother with replacing anything. This is an over 12 year old printer so over the years it will have some gear dust appear, plus if the unit had the fuser replaced before, it may have had a white/beige gear.

I agree. I've replaced a lot of 4200/4300 gears, but never a 4000/4100 drive gear.
