Also, take into consideration, that not all LSAs experience the rattle issue and if they do, the level of noise varies. I have an '09 with 33k-miles, with no discernable rattle. Cross that bridge if and when you come to it. Overall, the V2s are bulletproof.I've tried searching for an answer to this but haven't found anything so I created an account in hopes of getting some info. V2s are just now starting to reach the end of that 10 year extension GM provides for replacing superchargers that develop the rattle with spring isolator.
My problem: I'm wanting to pull the trigger on a 2010 V2 A6 sedan with about 35k miles, but the SC hasn't been replaced yet and now it's nearly the end of 2020... Can I install the solid isolator to avoid any future problem or am I just gambling at this point since I couldn't take it to a dealer for a free replacement at this point...
I've been wanting to own a V2 forever but I can't deal with the idea that I may be on the hook for a new SC or according to GM, even worse - the engine ceasing if the problem is apparently bad enough.
Any and all help is appreciated!
