    Question do i need an alternator?!

    so i was driving home from work last night, and i started to get what i thaught was power steering whine. but then i realized that it stayed a constand pitch when i turned, but only incresed when i accelerated. so when i got home i got to tinkering, and narrowed it down to my alternator pully.

    so heres the big question, can i get a new pully, and if so does it come with the new bearings, or do i have to get a whole new friggen alternator?!

    thanks all!!

    The bearings are an integral part of the alternator.

    Your turbo made itself into a supercharger.
