Maybe ask a colleague for help with it if it's a customer's drive.

there are couple of things you can try if drive is spinning fine and no clicking sound.
can take a look by TV if interested.

It is a client's job and sadly the other tech had to leave suddenly and I'm thrown into the world of PC3K pretty much blind I do know DDI and have been repairing computers for 13 years and doing other non PC3K related recovery's

Notorious for heads and often firmware issues. Can try a loader. Read the pc3000 WD Marvell manual. It will be helpful.

Yes, I've seen quite a few WD10EADS-xxM2Bx where one of the heads has weakened / failed. Change the Head Map in RAM (user Loader if required), work out if one of the heads is bad. The current PC3000 manual shows you how to do this on page 20.
