Default Yamaha 2005 F225 Chirp or squeak sound

No signs of corrosion

I dropped the lower unit and found nothing wrong. Ran it for 4 hours yesterday after noticing this sound last time I flushed it and had no problems. I have searched and found some answers, mine is not the small exposed area where the drive shaft is visible. Silicone spray didn't stop it.

When starting it up cold in a tub it doesn't make this sound, only after it reaches the operating temperature it begins. I can feel the water get warm and then the sound begins. Sounds like it's coming from the drive shaft bushing area (thanks Hotspot & Andy), but would the water temperature change cause the bushing to make this sound?



Thanks for any ideas
