Supercharger Clutch Parts?

Hi, So my SLK 32 has a very slight squeak from a stop or near stop when it is cold. It's a faint chirp, and it goes away after the car heats up and I can live with it. I have been reading and it seems likely it is the supercharger clutch engaging, it sounds like a loose belt. A few questions.

In anyone else's experience, is the s/c clutch the likely culprit?

Does this presage bearing failure?

Should I worry about this causing collateral damage?

I have looked online and cannot find the s/c clutch pack, does anyone have a parts site they recommend?
