Lift Required for Supercharger Removal?

My car has an appointment tomorrow for a supercharger replacement. Is there a reason why the dealer would need to lift my car to remove it? I know the instructions from GM may be different than what we follow. I haven’t installed my lift pads yet and I don’t want to make a “dealer damaged car while lifting” thread.

Thanks

Probably just to lift it up a bit so the tech isn't bending over during the install. That would be the only reason I could imagine. Ask them if they have to use a lift that they use a roll on lift.

yep, lifting the car slightly definitely makes things more comfortable to work on.

Well, the car is at the dealer. I completely forgot to ask if they were going to lift the car, but I guess it doesn't matter at this point. Definitely going to install the lift pads before I take it in for service next time.

It makes a loud "clacking" noise for the first 5-10mins on a cold start. They think it's the supercharger, which is what I thought initially. If this doesn't solve the issue then I think it might be the fuel line.
