Take the belt off and try it again. I am starting to see a lot of alternators make that same noise. There's a clutch of some sort that makes the noise internally. Definitely worth a shot. You can't spin the alternator with a drill to check the noise, it has to be loaded electronically to make it happen. Removing the belt is the easiest way to tell. Keep us updated!
