WHERE ARE YOU GETTING YOUR PARTS? WHEN ALT. IS REMOVED CAN A PROBLEM BE FOUND WITH IT? HOW LONG DOES THE REPLACMENT LAST? I THINK IT MAY BE SOMETHING ELSE. IF YOU JUST TOOK THE BELT OFF THEN PUT IT BACK ON WONDER IF NOISE STOPS? IF SO MAY BE TENSINOR OR OTHER DRIVEN COMPONETS. JUST A THOUGHT. ANY ODD NOISE JUST AFTER ENGINE SHUT OFF LIKE SOMETHING IS STILL RUNNING,AS ALT.PULLEY IS CLUTCHED AND THEY DO GIVE PROBLEMS.
