Post New Member Pete

Hi, all,

I live in the center of the Napa Valley, and have a 2000 C230K that I bought new. It just hit 200,000 miles, has not needed any repairs so far, and is in outstanding condition. I've taken real good care of it. BUT, the supercharger is now making a loud grumbling noise at idle in gear. The noise goes away at higher rpm, and the thing runs great. I checked the price of a new supercharger and fainted. In case this thing blows up on me, does anyone know if the C230K will run without the supercharger? Like just removing the belt?
