Locate the Alternator

To locate the alternator, look for a small fan-like object about the size of an adult man’s hands connected to a pulley and/or belt. Since an alternator consists of a rotor that is turned when the belt moves and that creates electricity by rubbing metal coils, there is a good amount of heat created; it will therefore be housed in a metal casing that will allow airflow to pass through, much like a fan.
