Removal & Installation
A small amount of oil seepage through the front seal is normal. This seepage is caused by minute traces of oil escaping around the seal due to normal pressure build up in the oil cavity within the supercharger. A build up of dust can stick to the thin oil film, which causes the oil seepage to appear worse than it really is. The supercharger should not be replaced for this seepage. However, if supercharger oil is visually dripping from the supercharger front seal, the supercharger will need to be replaced. The supercharger oil level should be checked every 30,000 miles or every 36 months.
