I pulled the cap off but didn't tear the motor right apart are the bearings prone to going?

a bud of mine had same problem, he replaced the freespool end assy, no more noise, it looked ok and seemed to work ok when off the winch, but works gooder now!

Did he just replace the plastic end cap or the internals too ? My cap seems a bit screwey anyway
