Sudden Whirring noise and Burning Smell.

Hi all.

I got my 2010 Focus TDCi 2.0 Titanium with the Semi-Auto Powershift

It's got 33k miles and has had a full service by ford every year. (Literally Had a service last month)

Just driven to the shop and was fine, drove back and I noticed the car was making a "Whirring" noise, defiantly gets louder when the car is revved but I've not lost any power. Took it out for another spin earlier and then opened the bonnet to find a slight burning smell... Checked all hoses and belts when engine off and on and couldn't see and splits or cracks in anything. But the whirring is defiantly effected by the revs.

Any suggestions? Is the burning smell dangerous? I've only ever dealt with Petrol cars in the past..

Sound is just a low whirring noise that changes volume/pitch with revs. The burning I've never smelt before. I've had the car 7 months. Strange. I'll take t to the garage on Monday and see what they say?

It was the alternator, I've just had it replaced as the bearing in the old one had seized and created so much heat that it melted the ceramic coating inside the alternator. £220 fitted same day wasn't too bad! And that was with a new belt too.
