Default water pump pulley 2012 SX4

The water pump pulley on my girlfriends 2012 SX4 is wobbling. It was only making a noise until today, and now the belt is squealing, and there is a major wobble. Is there any way to tighten it, or will I have to replace the entire water pump? If I need to replace it, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Your best bet is to replace the water pump.
That way you will not need to worry about the pulley flying off
and leaving her stranded in the middle of nowhere
in the dark of the night, trying desperately
to hitchhike home.

Rock auto has good prices.
and
to the forum!

If it has the j20a engine it is possible the pulley has come loose though unlikely. If the pump shaft is that loose I'd expect coolant all over your feet

j20a shown


I'd have the aux belt off for a better check, any play on the pump shaft and it's a new pump.
