Is this the sound of bad heads??
No visible platter damage.
PCB checks out okay.
I have not heard a Seagate make this sound before (but I am a newbie).

Location: In your hard drive.
If this is a customers drive you may want to send to to a facility that has the experience to handle this job. The sound is common.
