    If I recall correctly the first gen blowers(grey) had a problem with the nose cone cracking and leaking. If that's not the issue or you have the second gen(black) then the gasket that seals the nose cone to the blower is leaking. Either way, I think you might have to pull it off.

    i was thinking the nose seal might turn old and cracked may be its time to replace with new seal.
    but anyone know what kind of tools to use to remove the bolt from the nose? or to take it apart?

    I have 80,000 miles on it and am wondering what maintenance I need to do on the Grey colored SuperCharger . Oil change ? How? Can I do it without removing it? I have no problems yet but I see some evidence of oil on the hood above the SuperChanger. :(
