is it just the rotating part that wobbles or is the fan frame loose against your cooler aswell?

The rotation part

 

that probably means either your bearing inside is broken or the fanblades themselves are not fastened against the shaft properly. 

if you pull on the hub part of the fanblades, does it come loose easily?

How do I tell if the bearing broke

 

if the bearing inside is broken the shaft should feel loose and when you rotate it it shouldn't feel smooth. sometimes it also makes a grinding noise when you power it on.

i think it would be much easier to see what's going on if you take the fan out of your pc. 

i can't really see anything from these pics, sorry.

Will I have replace the fan?

well, i really cannot be sure unless you get it out of the case, but i think it might be wise to replace it anyway. 

even if you take it out, repairing it properly without imbalancing the rotor is pretty difficult, and if you repair it with an imbalance, it will start vibrating and eventually break again.
