Creaking noises when the Z axis moves

Hi,
I recently got my Prusa MINI and things have been great. It's been going almost non-stop since a couple of weeks now. In the last couple of days it started to make loud creaking noises when the extruder moves along the Z axis at the start and very end of a print. I've attached a short video where it's clearly audible.
I'm guessing that a part just needs oiling but the thing is I have no idea which one.
Has anyone encountered this? Any clues and to what could be making those noises?

Cheers,
Martin

did you lubricate the bearings?
