Brand new Toro 826OE - Squeaking reverse

Hello guys,

Brand new Toro 826OE owner, pretty happy with the blower except for the light squeaking in reverse.

I tried adjusting the traction cable, but to eliminate the noise I have to excessively loosen the traction cable (spring length to 1.7-1.8 inch versus the recommended 2.2), to a point where the cable is literally hanging loose when idling. The snow blower still goes forward and reverse, but I don't think that's normal and could be related to something else (friction wheel)? If it's the friction wheel, I can't find any external adjustment and there is nothing related to it in the manual.

Thanks!

Hard to tell, I didn't open it, coming from inside.

Here's a video when engaging reverse and the traction spring is matching the specs (2.2 inch):

It's intentional since there's nothing to see (I'm only engaging reverse).

All I hear is the motor. if I could here it which I can't. I would need to see the general area. it could be something totally different. and I am not up to speed with those new fan dangled TORO'S. I am from the old school. which was 1971-1995.
