Default Rattle in my SC

Hello,
I am a nubie and I have a question? I have a1994 Bonnie SSEi with rattle in my sc. I wanted to know can I take the nose cone off and repair or do I have to take off the whole super charger to make the repair? I think it just might need a coupler, I am going to check for movement here on my pulley and shaft. Help from anyone here that knows what up with my sc would be so GREAT! Thanks for your time and help Pat

You can drain the SC oil out and then pull the nose off without needing to pull the SC off to replace the coupler.

I believe with that year the whole supercharger needs to come off.

You know what...I believe you are right Dan. It'* the shorter snout and you can't get to all the nose retainer bolts. My apologies!

92-95 charger must come off because the accessory bracket is in the way. One could move said bracket except it extends to the bottom of the motor like a Ford bracket.

96+ it'* on the vehicle service w/o removing the charger.

Default Update to rattle in my sc

Hello,
I took off the belt and twisted my sc left and right there is just a little play in it more play twisting counterclockwise not much though. I tried to move it up and down and left to right to check on the bearings and it is snug as can be no movement at all. I am low on funds right now any ideas on how long and what should I do? Thanks everyone.
