    If you suspect it is the pulley clutch that is slipping or jammed solid you should test it by removing the belt and locking the alternator rotor then seeing if the pulley locks in the usual direction of rotation and free wheels in the reverse direction, look on youtube for vids. If it locks in both directions it is knackered, you also need a tool like this to remove the pulley if you intend to swap or renew it.
