The torsion damper is usually situated behind the engine to absorb shock and vibrations. It is used to keep engine torque peaks and operational irregularities away from the powertrain. Torsional vibrations and noise can become problematic if the torsion damper is worn. This is due to the forces operating in the powertrain that are not reduced, resulting in increased noise and vibrations and reduced driving comfort.
The most reliable way to determine if your torsion damper needs replacement is to let your servicing centre test drive the vehicle to determine if there is excessive noise and vibration caused by a worn part.
