i just went out to the car and the alternator is making crunching type noises is the best way to discribe it, need a new one?, or maybe just pulley needs crc or something, but gets faster as engine revs harder..., any ideas?

the dust seals in the bearings have probly shat them selfs and has let some dust in with the grease, whats makes a nice little grining paste, kills the bearings pretty quick.

thats my idea
