The coupler is available for $36 us from http://www.zzperformance.com/zzp/pro...sc_coupler.htm
Its not hard to change out, few hand tools and dont forget to pick up supercharger oil grab 2 bottles.
For $1700 cdn thats a good deal.

The pulley your engine turns is a shaft that turns inside the snout, that shaft is used to turn the rotors of the supercharger. It does this through a set of gears and connected via a wearable safety coupling. The fact the coupling has worn instead of expensive gears is good.

If you can't do it yourself, the dealer can also replace the nose cone portion of the */C. When I last checked it was about $400 american for the whole nosecone.
