Supercharger Rattling?

I noticed today that my SC was making more noise than I remember it making previously. Was just curious if any of your SCs are making rattling noises at idle.

TIA!

Edit: Oh, only 1200 miles on it so far, mostly highway.

I put my ear like 2 inches above it and moved my head all over the engine compartment, noise was definitely loudest directly over the SC.

yeah i hear that too while idling, and it definatly seems to be from the supercharger, i wish i would have paid attention when i first got the car to see if it made some noises then.

Sounds like a scraping noise? I have that one... right out of the s/c. I think its normal.

I'll mention it to them when I have my passenger door panel replaced, see what they think. I'll let you know.
