Mitsubishi hc3000 noise

the noise started a year ago on startup but went away after 3 mins. Now it's constant and I presumed it's the fan, but a quick google and color wheel seemed to dominate the search.

Does anyone have experience with this? I have a new bulb Insed (the 3rd since I've owned it) and love this projector so I'd hate to scrap it.

Can the color wheel be adjusted, cleaned etc? I have no idea how to approach this outside channeling Fonzi.

Side note: writing on the forum via chrome on the iPhone, what a pain!

Bump...It's getting worse. Any advice on a cheap way to fix this would be appreciated.

I presume it's this:


I see replacement ones on ebay for $100 but that seems pretty expensive. Are there any guides on how to remove and replace a faulty color wheel anywhere? I can't find much info on it.
