Hi - Newbie from downunder.
Just found this forum and I think just in time, I was researching a repair or replacement of my supercharger for my 2001 SLK230. I noticed the sound and took it down to my (trusted & time proven) mechanic and he had the belt off today and confirmed that the supercharger was hard to turn - so that's whats led me to here!
After reading all the tricks and mods I can do, I a bit excited to have found the forum to be honest
I expect that the repair is going to cost me a few K - I have had very few problems and she is a shiny red beauty worth keeping with only 73ooo on the clock.
I have been told that the replacement superchargers from the USA can run around 4k - is that what I'm looking at or are there options locally here in Australia?
Any hints or tips would be really appreciated as she is still drivable but I am restricting the usage until I get her fixed.
