147 1.9JTD 16v - knocking noise from engine

Went to look at a 2003 147 1.9JTD 16v last evening... had never driven this type before and currently have a 1.6TS.
Anyway the car drove well, good torque pull etc but there was a pretty loud ticking / knocking noise - vendor tried to shrug it off as needing a new alternator... I personally have no idea so walked away from it
any thoughts on what it is likely to have been?

Knocking noise as in engine sound or something else? I think those JTD's are very noisy compared to other diesel cars so I'm guessing that's what you mean

def from the engine - especially when revving but car stationery for eg at a junction waiting to pull out.... when the turbo whistled in it disappeared... dunno if it drowned it out or cured it momentarily

Tried local private garage but they wer'nt sure - they mentioned that those engines are pretty bullet proof... any more wisdom out there?... say what would the alternator sound likel if it was faulty anyway?
thanks
