    I just picked up my new Challenger Hellcat this morning. When I got home, I noticed this noise coming from the supercharger area. Since I don't have any frame of reference on these cars yet, is this a normal noise or should I be concerned? Just trying to save myself and the dealer time if this is a normal occurrence. Sort of sounds like a noisy bearing.

    Thanks in advance for your expertise.

    I haven't heard that on mine. Sounds like a bad pulley or bearing. In any case, it does not sound normal.

    Something isn't right. Sounds like maybe a bearing in the tensioner or a pulley but hard to say from the video. Take it to your dealer and I'm sure they will get to the root cause and fix it under warranty.

    As per my post above, it doesn't sound normal. I'm amazed that the dealer didn't catch that when prepping the car and at least alert you to the existence of this problem and make plans to further evaluate and repair it. You might want to ask about that when you take the car in. I suspect that they may reply with something like: "We haven't had any supercharged motors before so we didn't know it was abnormal". To that I would reply that 6 "non-mechanics" on the forum could tell that it is not normal, so why would a "trained" mechanic miss that? I hope that the rest of your service experience with your dealership is more competent than your first experience. Congrats on the acquisition of your Hellcat! (At the time of this posting, the OP is not online. Gee, I wonder where he might be? Driving his Hellcat per chance? :cool:)

    Jason...if you could provide your build# and date. That would be helpful for those just getting their cars and give them something to look for during the coming PDI's. Thanks
