Jep, that would have done it too, BUT what would prevent the grease from reaching the axle again after a couple of 5+ hour prints?

It is for the UM2+ upgrade kit feeder, the geared one. The nylon gears of the feeder are totally intact and showed not visible signs of stress or damage also the fitting of the drive gear is perfect. No wiggling, only slipping. I think this whole issue was caused by some grease from the feeders gear train that has managed to reach the steppers axle. Before the issue i had a couple of 5+ hour prints with ABS.

Hi Neotko, you are right in case the unintended movement were around the stepper axle. But you wouldn't lose any steps if the movement is only along the axle. The drive gear had slipped along the axle towards the stepper cause grease from the feeder made its onto the axle. In this case the rotary motion is perfectly transmitted to the gear but the gear could slip along the axle. In my case it moved always towards the stepper - reproducibly so a simple spacer fixed the problem.
