    Default Strange ticking noise coming from alternator area?

    Hey guys after a bit of advice please?
    I noticed yesterday there was a tick tick ticking noise coming from the engine.
    Upon inspection it appears to be coming from/near the alternator area.
    Is this bad?
    What could it be? are there any commong faults?

    it could be the alternator itself.

    Or one of the pulley's or tensioners for the alternator / timing belt.

    Try removing the alternator belt and running it for a few minutes to see if you can still hear the noise
