Default Y axis making strange sound

We just started to develop this rubbing sound when the y axis moves. It is really only happens when the gantry moves in one direction. We have cleaned and greased the linear bearings, cleaned and oiled the rails, waxed the teeth on the spur gear and rack, Checked for clearance issues and made sure key and keyway were lined up. Nothing is helping. It was subtle last week then went away for a few days. Now it is back and louder. any one have this issue before?

Pull the servo/stepper covers (black covers on each side of the gantry) off and inspect the gear and belts when moving gantry

Something is rubbing somewhere
