Way back when we used to listen to music on vinyl, the turntables had a part called an idler wheel.

I think an idler wheel, with its rubber surface, would work better than a hard plastic wheel or a metal bearing. Or, you could just stretch an o-ring over the plastic screen wheel like putting a tire on a wheel. Either way, rubber on metal should be reasonably quiet.

I put a plastic zip tie around the frame where the lid rubs and let the lid rub the tie. 2 years and still holding.
