Fuji 35mm f1.4 anomaly

Just acquired a second hand 35mm f1.4 which seems to work fine optically

Only issue is the AF could make a mechanical whining sound (as if it needs greasing)  especially when it has to hunt to acquire focus (like at close distance);

Also the noise can be heard when the lens retracts on power off

AF is not particularly fast as compared to the 18-55 but I already know this

I upgraded the firmware to 3.11 but the noise is still there

Anyone experienced this and have a remedy?

Thanks in advance
