Yes, you can still drive the car. No real damage will occur, but performance will be poor. It's not impossible to change the belts, just time consuming with the way the belt is run around the motor mount bracket.

SOURCE: can i still drive a 95 buick riviera with a bad

if your supercharger sounds like tumbling rocks, it is the plastic coupler between the nose cone and the charger body; take off your serpentine belt; chances are the pulley has some play in it but it turns freely; the replacement coupler is a cheap fix; what gets a lil pricey is the labor to replace it... the buick has an alternator bracket that has to come off before you can take the nose off of the supercharger... dont forget to drain the oil from the nose cone with a spray bottle nozzle

How do I remove the altinator belt and replace the supercharger with a new one? just so you guys know... MINE IS DONE FOR NOSE BROKE AND BEARING CAME OUT AND ITS SEIZED. PLUS PULLEY BROKE IN HALF.


Sorry to hear that. Few people know the supercharger has its own oil. It needs to be checked and refilled as the car ages.
There is a spring loaded belt tensioning device....you need a socket that fits the bolt (some have a square hole for a 1/2 breaker bar) you take the tension off the belt and slip the belt off the most convenient pulley.

You can get the diagram from most any auto parts store, or the website for Gates belts and hoses.
