Getting more than usual vibration in the van. Should I replace it ASAP or will it be grand for a while?

Change it!!! If it breaks up and throws the fan belt, the belt could get dragged into the timing belt area, =expensive,

Its proper title is a harmonic damper and thats one of the worst i have seen. Replace it and you will be surprised what a difference it will make to the van plus it will save some serious damage if it does give way T:T:

Cheers lads, comprehensive result. My head was saying the same but the wallet still had hope for it.

Thant my friend is 'FUBAR' :cool:
Exactly what mine looked like before i changed it!
Don't forget you need a new crank bolt and diamond washer when changing it as its a stretch bolt.
Also it will be stupidly tight and needs the correct insane 460Nm or 340ft lb torque when re-fitting.
Quite a few folk on here have had them shear off, timing goes out and the cam shaft snaps.
Get it done asap.
I got a virtually new one off eBay for £40
