    took the car in to dealers today and the problem is the bearings in the alternator are shot. so with the warrenty running out on the 30th of this month they are going to replace the alternator, tensioners and the belt, also they are going to do all the front bushes for me under warrenty to try and get rid of the periodic clonk from the steering.... good result me thinks. I always go back to same dealer, cant fault them....
