Atlas FLT bearings clicking?

Hey guys,

so I used my atlas FLT in the rain on the weekend and I find out now that it doesn't slide smoothly at all. constant little clicking and bumps.

the track is clean and I wiped it down but perhaps its the bearings inside or something. Sucks because I wanted to use it on a shoot this weekend but oh well, my fault for not checking it sooner I guess. I kinda take gear for granted thinking it should work in all weather I work in.

Anyone have any tips on cleaning it or fixing it?

Thanks

Figured it out. I took it apart and the issue is tarnished castors :(
