Re: weird noise

well no one can answer for sure.take the belt off and start the engine.if the noise goes its the alternator.
with the belt off turn the alernator to check for striking,resistence,rough feelings
if nothing then try refitting the belt to tension and see if it makes the noise.

Re: weird noise

With the engine running squirt some WD40 on the inside run of the alternator belt. Chances are it picked up some dirt in there. It should go magically quiet..

Though the sound does sound lilke alternator bearings...

Make sure you don't stick the can of WD40 or your fingers into the belt itself (it'll hurt!) and don't hold your face where any WD40 you just squirted on is going to get thrown off (it doesn't taste too good)
