Hi Could anyone advise on the length of time it would take to replace the clutch on a KAD44 supercharger?
And any obvious reason why the new one wouldn’t click in?

Under 5 minutes. You need circlip pliers, 2 x M6 threaded bolts to hold it for tightening and a 10mm socket. 2 x circlips and a 10mm bolt. Easy job. Set air gap between .35 and .7 with a shim on assembly.

More likely engine above 40 deg c , Sc won’t cut in above 40 unless revving high or under load .

fuse is under black box along with edc fuse .
seriously don’t you guys have a hand book !,

Hi no, don’t have a handbook I’m afraid
Both those fuses are intact
Will report back after VP diagnosis has solved the mystery

Cheers

If you have no fault codes no plug in will sort it , if no power at clutch it could be ECU problem which means new one .
