I've been hearing the odd clicking noise lately so I know a new belt is in store for me soon but I'm assuming this is not normal.

Assuming it's the original belt and that everything on the car is stock (bought car used), 26k and the only thing I added was CAI and TB.

Just replace your belt.

I don’t think many understand how much abuse the supercharger belt takes. The belt dance is crazy.

That's the plan. I just wanted to know if it was an indication of a problem, other than normal wear and tear? Has anyone replaced the accessory belt on these cars? Is it a pain in the ass? Are we sticking with OEM or are there better alternatives?

Stock belt for a stock car is fine. Accessory belt is easy too and might as with the SC belt off.

The AC belt is tricky if you don’t know what you are doing.

My bad, your failed belt is accessory belt.
