I had this problem years ago. glad you found it before it fell off like on my car. Was going down the road, pulley and belt went flying. (all after a dealer serviced the timing belt on the car and likely did not use the proper torque or locktite on the bolts.)

These bolts are one of the few bolts I locktight on.
