Default 2.0 bluehdi GT line alternator?

The wife said the car was making a squeaking noise so I went out to have a look.
As soon as i started it up there was a clunking noise from the front, opened the bonnet and saw what looked like wisps of thread, almost like strands of candy floss. I then noticed bits falling apart near the alternator (pics attached).
Not being a mechanic or a tinkerer I've no idea what it is but i would assume it's undriveable and needing recovered to the garage and fixed under warranty.

Any advice would be appreciated

Hi on my 2014 Peugeot 2.0 blue HDI there was a recall on alternator belt and tensioner so your car should have had it replaced under warranty.

There's no outstanding recalls showing for it so if it affected this model and it's already been done they haven't done a very good job of it

Clearly the tensioner has fallen apart, which means you will get no charge from the alternator. Only fix is a new tensioner and belt.
If it's still under warranty no problem. If it's not might be worth shopping around.

Hi i never got told off the tensioner fault until my car went in for clutch creaking so check with your dealer see if it should have been changed.

I've managed to get the remaining parts removed, no visible shearing or means of attachment to the alternator and it's starting up without any warning lights but a slight squeaking noise when running although the belt is slightly frayed at the edge. Would it be safe to drive the 4 miles to the dealer or am i better off telling them to recover it from my home.

It's not attached to the alternator.
Without it fitted, I wouldn't expect the alternator to be spinning at all. The squeaking noise would be the crankshaft pulley spinning inside the belt.

If you have a fully charged battery you could possibly drive 4 miles, but safer to get it recovered.

Thanks for the advice I'll phone them in the morning.
