Hi guys,

I'm just wondering what could be wrong with this drive doing such a behavior and hoping that the pros from this forum would provide us with their vast knowledge about it.

I've taken a short video of it here: https://ufile.io/f4blb

If any further details would be required, I will be more than happy to describe what's all about this drive.

Much appreciated and wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I guess uploading your video to Youtube was too difficult?
There is a mechanical failure with the hardware on the drive. If the data is critical, you can send it off to the very, very, expensive Data Recovery Specialists. Most people can't afford this option.
Here are list of things describing what is causing this: Clicking Hard Drive Noise - What Causes It? | Data Recovery Group
There are also a list of things to NOT do, like take the cover off, which you have done.

I hope you know by opening the drive that it's now ruined. They should only be opened in a Class 100 Clean Room.

That behavior is the drive repeatedly searching for Track 0 and not being able to find it.
