Middle bearing plate that has scored the torsion bar. The original springs didn’t have a middle bearing and caused this type of grinding. This type of damage can be quite serious if it isn’t caught early as it is quite hard to detect. The springs have to be properly mounted with a middle bearing for the bar to last the lifetime of your garage door.
