For sometime now I was wondering what that sound might be while driving my 2000 honda accord ex v6. Today when my car left me on the road I learned what it was. It is the alternator. I was told by the mechanic that that most probably the bearings inside the alternator has gone bad and the moving part inside hit the surrounding while turning, which burned the alternator. Apparently this is very common with Denzel alternators that Honda used in this model. Repair is laborsome and the alternator itself is not so cheep, so the mechanic asked for $550.
