If your alt. isn't making noise the bearings are probably ok.
Diodes are like a check valve, they let the current flow in one direction only. If they flow current in both or neather directions they are kaput. You can check this with a multi-meter.
There seems to be a number of different alts for your model year, some having the internal reg and others having the external. If I had the external I would be considering swapping out the the old reg. first.
The light didnt come on because it was still charging.
