not your reel but everything else seems to point to taking your reel apart and then breaking off the clicker striker.  On other brands, the clicker is integral to the operation and is the pawl mechanism so you can't really file down the noisemaking part that comes in contact with the other metal.  That spring tension is needed for the proper operation.  Did you happen to take your reel apart last time to inspect it or turn the direction around and maybe bent the clicker?
