My alternator seems to have started to make a whistle that goes louder as i revv. This could be a bad things considering it didnt do that last week. I was thinking perhaps its the ball bearings that have gone on it. Please let me know what you think.

It does sound like the bearings are shot. It gets horribly irritating real quick when them things start squeeling.

Last two times I've had "the whistle" it was a bad alternator.
