Have you pulled the freehub off yet to look inside? After just 9 months use I was rather surprised to find mine totally shot - needle bearing corroded and all the pawl springs broken. You might find yours needs more than a new bearing.
Pop it in a jiffybag back to Hope with a covering letter and their return form and a rebuilt (think I actually got a whole new freehub) one will usually reappear a few days later
Just needed a good tap with a piece of tube to get it to click the seat / "seal" back in place.
Seems like backwards progress - we've got a 17 year old Hope XC hub that has its original pawls, springs and needed just one set of freehub bearings...
