It looks like the Y axis rack teeth are facing UP. That is undesirable because any debris will stay there and will interfere with the gear mesh.
Gear wear and possible jamming . . . bad.
I recommend that you go through what ever trouble it is to re-orient the rack so the teeth are down. Let Gravity work for you, not against you.
That’s a good point. I believe the motor mount is symmetrical so I can easily flip the the whole sliding assembly end for end so the rack is on top.
