I read your public profile and it says you have a 2002. What symptoms are you noticing that makes you ask the question?

Also, please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

Noise from the supercharger is a good inductor there is a problem. If it sounds like grinding, or it'* filled with rocks then it needs a rebuild. There are a few write ups in the tech info area explaining what you need to do. The most likely problem will be the coupler, here'* a write up on changing that. There is also some videos to help you determine if that is your problem.

I'm rebuilding one right now, will be ported and polished. If it'* just a coupler you can do it yourself if your handy.
