I had the fluid changed at 40k. Now have 80k. My manual is locked in glovebox with broken door. Have a werid metsl grinding sound occassionally when I get on it. Thinking its time to change the fluid. Any opinion?

Is it worth the cost of the fluid to just do a drain and fill, or better to just have the dealer do a full flush with the machine and Dex 6?
