So the mrs rang me yesterday morning saying the alternator workshop light had flashed up on the dash and again on her way home from work. It did it to me around 2 months ago but never happened again.
Doesn't struggle to ever start but just been out to have a listen and there is definitely a rattle coming from around the pulley area now.
Does this sound like the pulley clutch?

Cheers,Tony

Sounds like clutch. There only 3-4 parts to an alternator and if it's not over or under charging its usually the clutch.

My old R used to flash workshop every now and again but voltage was ok. Is yours?

Haven't checked the voltage but this noise wasn't there last weekend as I did a 300+ mile round trip to santapod. Will check it tomorrow though and see what it reads. What should it be?
