From some research it sounds like there may have been a TSB about it.
The tensioner should have movement up and down but no side to side or lateral movement. The pulley should not have any wobble to it at all. Also, check the idler pulley because those are known for bearings going out and coming off. Neither are too hard to replace IIRC. Your best bet would be replace the tensioner, idler pulley and belt all at the same time.
