Pentax 100mm scraping sound

Pentax D-FA 100 Macro WR
Brand new from the seller, the lens focus system makes a scraping sound that I never have heard on a lens. At first, I was using AF and so did not hear it, but when using manual, it is clear. I recorded the sound on my phone.

Anyway, I assume any such sound means it should be sent back and replaced.

Getting a 404 error from the flickr page- but let's see the video/recording and we'll tell you whether or not it's normal!

Mine makes a slight scraping sound which I perceive as being the inner barrel sliding against the weather seals. Your noise however seems extreme to me, almost a grinding sound compared to mine.
