Unfortunately, the clicking sound you are hearing is a broken gear. They are made of hard plastic and break over time.

The only way to fix it would be to replace the gear which would require a printer service technician since it's hard to get to and remove.

However, it will cost about the same as a new printer and you can get one that is under warranty. I would suggest that route instead.
