Probably a worn bearing. The only other thing that I have seen cause this is a bent spindle. This would usually occour if the machine has had an impact or if the blade has been suddenly jammed against a nail or something in the work that has caused it to jam and/or jump up.
A good indicator for bearing wear is to see how much play is in the blade in an up/down and side to side movement (unplug saw, safety first).
To check spindle, remove blade and run machine without the flanges etc on. Rest a scredriver gently on the shaft as it spins and see if you notice any (uniform) vibration.

It sounds as though one or both of the items are stripped. They mesh to drive the blade so I would not take a chance on just replacing just one. Also when you look at this you might also want to look at replacing the bearings and brushes. Make sure you clean out the gear housing or you will have immediate problems again. Also check where you buy these parts for their recommendation on the grease that needs to be used.

Oh, you got it off. I bet you can put it back on again.
It's much easier if you take the blade off first. Then you'll be able to reach inside when you need to. Be patient, don't force it, and make sure when you get the spring reconnected properly that the guard moves freely out of the way when you chop, and returns when you raise the saw back up.
It's a bit of a trick, but I bet you can manage it..It's been awhile, but it seems to me there's a way to get the bolt started before you engage the tension on the spring...I'd have to have it in my hands to say exactly.
Here's a link to the exploded parts view at the Makita site, just in case. And it might help to have an extra pair of hands, or a piece of duct tape to hold the guard in place when you go to put the blade back on.

rotating the laser in its' housing moves it left and right. The hexagonal bolt on the sides needs to be loosened to do this, then it can also be adjusted up and down. Make sure the trigger to the saw is locked before doing this.
