American standard Draft inducer noise


I have a 5yr old freedom 80. Sometimes it seems like my draft inducer makes a whining almost squealing when running then stops. It almost sounds faintly like a circular saw cutting through wood very faintly though. Could this be the motor or the bearing.Or do you have to replace them both and is it hard to do it looks pretty straight forward
Thanks
Jeff

Could be bearing or squirrel cage (blower wheel). If you replace. Replace the entire assy

Hard to find here:

resulted in search on AS. Might be an 'A195'? Study pic carefully.

Maybe verify by pic & specs and then place to buy from?

Just gave the OK for a new inducer to be installed. $650 just for the blower. The link above shows it for $134.75. Man, that's some markup.
