WHAT? They see a blue and gold color around the alt, so it is bad? That makes no sense what so ever! If the belt is making noise, chances are there is a problem with the belt tension. Try an experiment for me. With the engine running and the hood open, pour a small amount of water on the belt. See if the sound changes. Let me know what you find. NOTE: WATER WILL SPLASH SO PROTECT YOUR EYES AND WEAR OLD CLOTHING
Also, I would like you to take the car to a nationally recognized parts store and have them check the alternator. Most will do it for free. That way we will be sure the alt is fine.
Let me know what you find.
