Hey Rollo,

What's the news? Did the dealer find out what the problem was? Was it the alternator?

I examined my belts and used a foot long tube to try and diagnose where the sounds is coming from and I couldn't tell. I think the alternator is at least $500... some people talk about changing out their bearing, dyi style, but not so sure it will be easy without equipment like a press.

I'm considering also going to the dealer, but not sure if its covered under Limited Warranty or the 4 year maintenance service.
