Hi,

  All of a sudden I'm getting a clicking sound as my printer moves from left to right (I think that's the x axis).  Please watch the video to hear this, it's towards the end of the video.

  I saw somebody else had this problem and felt the belt needed tightened.

Any Thoughts?

If it is the x axis belt, are there any videos to show step by step how to do this?

I think you have no problem with the X/Y/Z axis, it's rather the extruder. The hotend is blocked and the filament cannot be extruded. How to clean the hotend you can find here: https://help.prusa3d.com/en/article/clogged-hotend_2008

I agree that sounds more like the extruder is having a problem. Notice how it makes that noise even during a Y-motion without X movement.
