Engine size 4 or 6 cyl? V6 has two valve covers! Have a mechanic remove belt and spin alt. to see if any noise. If so replacment of the alt. is required.

I have a 4cyl camry and also had the alternator bearing fail, then two more times the same failure of aftermarket alternator. Discovered that my harmonic balancer was bad and that probably put extra stress on alt. bearing. So check harmonic balancer for leaks.
