Just wanted to share this. Had been seeing a battery light come up for a couple of days, only to go away at higher RPMs. Took my Alfa to work with a very spirited drive. Got into work and smelled melting plastic, parked and found smoke coming out of the alternator! It put itself out, but I had my extinguisher ready.

Found a local shop who rebuilt it ($150) and showed me the failed component. I think it was close to catching fire.
