Unhappy Replacing supercharger SSEI 92'

First post here.. Currently looking to replace my super charger on my 92' Bonneville ssei.. I need to find the manual to figure out how to put it in... Since I bought this car its always had a tiny grinding sound, now its gotten to the point where when i start it, it sounds awful.. I thought there was a way to unhook the super charger and bypass it but i guess not..Where can i find the manual to uninstall the current */c and install the new one??? It doesn't look to hard to uninstall, given this is my first project with this car... In too deep?

Not much to swap out the supercharger.

Take the belt off
Unhook vacuum and unplug boost control.
Remove air intake box hose from throttle body
Remove nuts holding throttle body and move TB out of the way
Remove bolts holding supercharger down, as well as any other bolts such as alt bracket, can't remember if your year has one.
Lift supercharger off.
Clean up gasket surface on the Lower Intake manifold.
Put new gasket on LIM
make sure new Supercharger surface is clean.
Put new supercharger on and line up.
Torque bolts to 19 foot pounds
Put throttle body back on and connect all hoses and plugs.
Put belt back on.

Not much to screw up. Just torque the bolts correctly and you will be fine.
