Supercharger Whine/Noise

Noticed when driving home for the holidays that the supercharger is making a bit more noise than usual. It seems like at idle its most noticeable and sounds like a steam engine, sort of a continuous sizzling noise or something. The mileage is around 90k is it time for a rebuild or does it need some simple service?

I require your largest, cheapest, most alcoholic brewed beverage.

When I got mine a few years ago, I was told to expect about 100,000 miles. Yours is approaching that and it may be time to find out where you can have it looked at. There is a shop in Calif that took care of a friend's, but I can't recall the name.
