I know that a few people have had to replace their alternator and I think it is my turn now.

On my way to work today, the engine started to make some groaning/whinning noises and when I got to work I popped the hood and listed to where the sound was coming from. It was coming from the alternator and there was also a really bad smell.

Has anyone had this same experience? What's else could be wrong? Just curious; I will be taking it into Toyota tomorrow to have it fixed, THANK GOD for extended service contracts. I have a little over 43000 miles on my '00 GTS and as they say, "soon after the factory warranty ends you start having problems".

I will let you all know how it goes when I get her back.
