    It's called a damper because it reduces the implicit out-of-balance harmonics of the engine. Without it the engine would vibrate excessively.

    Mine fell apart, too. Resulted in broken alternator belt, which then almost took out a cam timing belt. I spent a bunch of money for a used damper from Exotic Auto Recycling.
