I need to remove the nose cone from the supercharger to replace
coupler, seal, & bearings. It now appears that on this particular car
it is impossible (well, very difficult...) to get the
nose cone off while the supercharger is on the engine. A garage has told me
that the flat rate for supercharger R&R is 2 hours, so it can't be too
Yet, it looks to me like I would have to remove quite a bit of stuff, e.g.,
the FI system, the throttle body & linkages, and the upper coolant hose
before even beginning to work on the supercharger removal.
What am I missing?
