VW Golf TDI Screeching Noise Steering on Full Lock

My 2001 VW Golf TDI was making a screeching sound when the steering was on full lock at low speeds. This was the same problem I'd had with a previous VW Golf a few years back so the diagnosis was much easier. The fix was replacing the alternator clutch pulley and tensioner - in the end I decided to replace the whole alternator instead.

This video shows the noise that the engine/alternator was making with a seized alternator pulley. I'll do another video to show how to replace the alternator.
