You have to use the pulley removal tool, one part holds it the other loosens, there are different ones!

All the auxiliaries: Air Conditioning pump, Power Steering pump and Alternator are on one grooved belt, called the Auxiliaries Belt. The freewheel is on the Alternator.

So no, nothing to do with the cambelt other than when the Aux belt breaks it can flap about and break the engine cover and then break the cam belt, thus it is sometimes referenced in the same breath.

Don't get it confused with a semi siezed water pump, worn/dry PS pump, worn aircon compressor bearing, damaged pulleys/belt.
Spot on I think I have this and was seriously worried it was comming from the big end.

I've got a rattle alternator at idle.. Gets worse at load at low engine speeds, but never notice it once up to speed at all... Sounds like getting a pulley replaced will be a cheaper solution to try than replacing the whole alternator!
