Fan clutch issue (video)

Hello i need some help with my fan clutch, i know it is the issue and source of my noise but what exactly would be causing this to happen? the clutch its self is working properly but its just loose on the output shaft, idk if its a bearing or what. Any suggestions.

Sorry for the low qulity videos they were taken with my blackberry:

Thats alot of movement, you need to go to autostore and pick-up new fan clutch to replace. It's not that hard to do and there's an excellent write-up on the following link Jeep TJ 4.0L Fan Clutch

Usually just age and if it's seen alot of mud/water splashed up there
