Its more likely to be a pulley thats squeaking than the actual alternator. By applying WD40 to the inside of the alternator, it probably will break it. Your most likely going to need to replace the pulley, since applying WD40 is more likely to let the belt slip than fix the problem.

dont spray. as jee says it will cause more problems than sense. check your pulleys, belt condition and tension.
