I have an audible tapping coming from the engine bay. 67k mile 2009 Caliber SXT 2.0. The alternator was replaced previously by a shop.

In the video, take a listen.

If this is a sweepstakes my money is on alternator - was yours new or recon?

Take a plastic pipe as an audio tube to locate the source.

If you have a new idler pulley there is also a tensioner pulley .

There is a clutch on the alternator if they didn't replace it chances are that's your problem. Take the passenger front wheel off remove the splash guard. The sound should be in front of you
