Squeaky supercharger pulley
 
I got an AA sc kit and the pulley squeaks like crazy. It didn't do this when I bought the car a week ago. When it's cold it's really bad. It gets better when it warms up but doesn't go away. It's very annoying. Any suggestions on the best way to fix this? I don't want to just start spraying **** on it and making a mess or possibly do more damage.

Are you sure its the supercharger pulley and not another pulley? I remember mine did the same thing but it wasnt the supercharger being that it didnt have any bearings.

There is adj. on the back of the s/c for the belt and holding of the S/C.

plus 1 on the belt. it sounds like it's too loose. either adjust like trip said or find a size smaller belt for your pulley.

Easy to see if the adj. is installed and tight

Flaboy239 04-06-2012 02:15 PM

Anyone got a pic of where I can adj the tension or is it obvious?

Here's the squeak. Hopefully the video works.

Nm, couldn't get it to work...

It appears to be the lower idler pulley that's attached to the supercharger mounting bracket. There appears to be some surface rust. I'm going to take it apart and clean/lube it to see if it helps.

Well that wasn't it. That pulley was in good shape. While the belt was loose I checked the tensioner pulley and it seemed fine also. It's def coming from the drivers side. What the hell is it?? It's very loud and very annoying.

You would have to try adjusting the turn buckle on the back of the blower it has a bit of play with it which should help stop the belt squeal. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly via E-Mail at Viral@activeautowerke.com :hi:
