Clicking WD My passport noise after a 2 feet fall

I dropped my Passport ultra 4TB from a height of 2 feet while still attached to my MBP. Now it makes a clicking noise. It’s out off warranty so I opened it and tried resetting the head after seeing some videos on the net. However it’s still not recognised. Any suggestions are welcome.
The video is in the link… thanking you in advance


Please refer to the following KBA article: How to check if a WD drive is damaged or defective

So now when I connect it there is just a clicking sound and blinking.
1.Wd Drive utilities sees the Drive but no volumes
2.Disk utility does not show any drive
3.Just blinking drive indicator and clicking noise.PFA video link
4.None of the “Run Drive Test”,Run Quick Drive test" or “Run Complete drive test” buttons are working


Normally, the computer storage drives are quiet and steady, but in case of any physical damages or logical corruption, they can begin to make noise. There are numbers of different hard drive clicking sounds with different reasons. Most of the times there are 4 probable causes for clicking noise of a hard drive:

  1. The insufficient power supply is a very common cause of noise in the hard drive. It mostly happens when you have connected multiple devices (including the HDD) to a single port.
  2. Physical depreciation of the hard drive which results from either simple issues or damage such as a physical shock or trauma.
  3. A hard drive may be failed due to the faulty data cables, or incorrect drivers installed.
  4. A crashed hard drive.

If there is a noise, then you can try the subsequent fixes which people have used to overcome the issue:

  1. Check whether the hard drive is getting enough power or not. You can do it by plugging the power adapter directly into the power supply.
  2. Replace the data cable with the new one and turn on the drive. Now, if it does not make any noise, then the data cable might be faulty.
  3. In case the drive still makes noises, then there is a high possibility the drive is failing and needs to be replaced.
