    I think the ends of those runners are capped off with a plug similar to a freeze plug if I remember correctly.
    If a hole were to develop in one, I bet it would make a noise similar to a lifter.

    That's how it begins.

    Per,
    I watched (and listened) to that video before reading the last paragraph of your post, and my thoughts were a slight bearing knock also.
