Possibly, but not necessarily.
It may just be a case of getting new shims, or taking the current ones off, clean them up and put them back on with a dab of coppergrease.

I would love to be able to do such things but I'm not mechanically minded nor is my husband, but I will mention it to a friend and see if he will take pity on me.
thanks
