JS145 noisy slew

Location
Ceredigion
Had a noise in the slew for a while now just when it stops , not when it's turning , like a break binding noise , I've greased the lot many times including the one under the sump guard , could it be an oil valve that's doing it , no play at all in the slew ring and turns free , just a deep hum when it stops

Likely a sensor, slew brake will be dragging, had this on both my JS’s
don’t recommend using it until fixed.
Brake is a 2 stage system controlled by sensor usually located in a small valve block behind the cab, sure we just unplugged it to diagnose it, what age is it?

Neither of mine are as new as that but I suspect it’ll be a similar system

am I right in thinking it can't be the slew bearing as it only does it as it stops , or not ?

Not that block, could be the on on the right, worth checking the sensor first, mine only made a noise on the slow down,
If it’s not the sensor then it’s a strip down probably in the planetary,

I've had an older js130 on hire and it started groaning when slowing down after slewing, It was a few years ago now but sure it was a solinoid in the back right of the machine somewhere.
