Yes the alternator pulley seemed fine, and the tensioner vibrated like hell, but it WAS the alternator pulley (or at least the internal clutch mechanism within the pulley that was slipping) which had failed. Created a loud chattering noise. Changed the pulley and fitted a new tensioner and all was like new.
