suspect water pump

I am suspecting my water pump is on its way out...there is a belt squeak when I have the jeep in drive and the foot on the brake. I have noticed that the belt has started walking on the water pump / fan pulley. No leaking from the water pump. Hate waste the money if that's not it. has anyone else had this similar problem?

how is the belt condition? the tension? it might not be the water pump its possible the tensioner is going out or the belt is dying.

x1..Sounds like a belt issue. Check the condition of your belt for glazing and cracks along with the tension. A bad water pump will cause overheating, leaks, and sometimes noisy/wobbly shaft if the seal/bearings are bad.

You might want to detension the drive belt and check the water pump for binding and/or excessive runout.
