You cannot typically buy the entire assembly as one piece. You need to purchase the main motor and then all the related gears. There are companies out there that sell a kit with all the gears, look for one for the 5200 laserjet as they are the same.

Open main motor assembly clean entire gears, lubricate & fix it back..Check any gears are warn out, replace it if possible...Best of luck..
That is a swing gear and its damaged. Service will be needed. The part is an RM1-0043 Swing Plate Assy and you may also need to replace the fuser RM1-1082. The cost plus repairs will be around $250-$300 due to the 45 minutes it will take the service tech to remove the swing gear assy.
Remove toner cartirdge and check gears on cart as well as all of the gears you can see inside the unit for any signs of wear. You may also need to remove the fuser assembly and perform the same task with the gears back there. MAKE SURE THE POWER HAS BEEN TURNED OFF AND THE PRINTER UNPLUGGED FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TOUCH THE FUSER. IT WILL BE HOT!!! Most frequently these kinds of noises from the printer are due to gears slipping. Sometimes simply reseating the fuser assembly or toner cartridge will fix it. If there appears to be excessive wear on any of the gears, you will need to replace them.
