Very possible. Can you identify exactly where the squeak is?

Can you not narrow down the location more? Throw out bearing would be towards the back and the pulley is the front lol kinda a wide range of possibilities there

Take your belt off and spin all the pulleys by hand

If one sounds like it has sand in it or is lose, then thats your issue

I just recently had to replace my tensioner pulley and I did that method first after installing a new belt, and it narrowed it down easily

It may be the start of your timing chain wearing out. I did the EXACT same thing a couple of weeks ago. It continually got worse. I replaced all the pulleys and found out that it was the timing chain in the front of the motor and it was slapping the timing chain guide because it had gotten so loose.

This may not be your problem, but I went through the exact same thing about a month ago.

My TO bearing squeaks but it only does it when the engine is cold. It stops after being driven a bit.
If it's your TO bearing, it should stop squeaking as soon as you depress the clutch pedal.
Funny that you mention the tensioner pulley wobbling every time that you hear a squeak. My truck is doing the same thing. Both the belt and the pulley are brand new. As a matter of fact, they have been replaced TWICE! This has been an ongoing problem. I have it isolated to one side of the engine.
It's frustrating!
I still suspect that damn tensioner pulley...
Let us know what you find.

Had the same issue in the summer. Changed the belt first which made it a bit better but not perfect. Changed the tensioner and problem solved. There cheap on ebay and only take a few minutes to swap out

Squeak Squeak Squeak Squeak

I finally figured out what was causing my squeak.
Did you ever get yours to stop?
