I have a front bearing out on a supercharger in our 2002

Customer Question

I have a front bearing out on a supercharger in our 2002 Nissan Xterra and am wondering if the Eton repair kits I see on eBay for approximately $75 will work or will a replacement supercharger be necessary?

Bobby, I really need an answer. This is getting ridiculous. Jeff
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 8 months ago.
Sorry Jeff. The question disappeared on my end. I do not think that will work. I am going to opt out though and see if another expert can give you more information.
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.

that kit will work however i would never trust anything from EBAY. atleast for components as important as that. also are you planning to do the repairs yourself?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Mike, apparently the product is from eaten which is a good manufacturer but I can't find anyone to replace the bearing so far either locally or online. Any suggestions? Jeff
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.

that is a tough one. if you cant find anyone to do that you may need to send it to eaton for them to service it. since it is a liability issue for some people and there may be special tools needed to service the unit.

The only other thing I want to ask is if you know the manufacturer of the supercharger used in the factory model so I can buy the correct part/kit to repair it
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Ok, to finish this, can you tell me who the factory OEM manufacturer was for the supercharger from the factory?
Expert:  mike switzer replied 8 months ago.

either eaton or whipple. if memory serves correctly it is Eaton
