For the brave/careful

take a long handled screwdriver and place on the static bolt on the pulleys or the alternator shell and listen/feel at the other end for vibration/noise.

DO NOT get the scrwewdriver tangled with the pulleys or serpentine belt!!!

Alternative way I locate engine noises is using some hose. Take two or three feet of 3/8 or 1/2" diameter hose and carefully place one end near your ear and the other near various potential noise sources. This is a quick way to determine impending bearing failures, and is less likely to give you a shock or really break things if you slip...

Best of all is if the noise stays away.
Good luck.
