Question JRSC Failure??? Minor book inside lol

From what Ive read its seems like the common noise when these fail are described as two things.
1. Rocks/Gravel in the motor
2. HORRIBLE
I have more of a squeal that I originally thought was a belt squeal. Ive replaced the water pump, alt, tensioner, and a idler after the supercharger. However, I sat in the passenger seat for the first time as the GF wanted to drive it. Thats when I realized:
Sitting in the drivers seat, squeal sounds to come from the pass side.
Sitting in the pass seat, squeal sounds to be coming from the driver side.
Im trying to narrow where the sound is coming from, but is proving to be rather difficult as its not all the time.

NOW TO MY QUESTION ---> Could this noise be a sign of the supercharger going bad?

It kind of sounds to be coming around the throttle body. If you have any more info I would appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

Try running the motor for a few seconds without the serpentine belt to see if the noise goes away (under a minute don't want to get it hot) even tho the supercharger isn't turning without the belt the motor should still start because of the bypass valve

Agree , if you get a hose like a garden hose about 5 foot long , one end to your ear the other moving around to help pin point a noise , you could hear a cricket fart with this if crickets farted LOL

I have this tiny squel too. Sounds like a mouse running too hard. I figured since my blower has like 60K miles on it then it just needs an oil change.

I haven't done it yet but will update when I do.
