Default DTG Kiosk Running Rough

I've got an old DTG Kiosk but it still prints perfectly. The other day it starting running rough kind of like the print carriage was being held back. I greased the tracks, cleaned decoder strip and driver belt. The print carriage moves just fine when I manually move it but during printing it sounds rough shaking the machine. I believe it is the left pulley for the drive belt because it clicks like a missing tooth when I manually move the carriage to the right (not to the left). Does anyone agree / disagree? Also, does anyone know where to find these types of parts? Thanks in advance.

Try cleaning the metal gear on the carriage drive motor, driving the belt. Dirt gets into the grooves of the gear which can cause the belt to skip. You'll need a straightened paper clip or similar to get into the grooves to clean out any dirt.
