What did it do when you pulled the belt? Did it still make noise? If not....
When the lights on the dash dimmed, the the voltage gage go down a little too?
If you have the volt gage, the it'* the N/A motor, which means you have the 105A alternator. Have you replaced the alternator since you have owned the car?
When an alternator starts to go out, it starts to make noise. Not a metal to metal noise though
Every moving piece on the motor is on the pass side.
Check your tensioner pulley. Mine went to crap the night I bought the car
