The whole thing serves as a counter tensioner which help the molded rubber thing. I got tired of replacing the whole tensioner unit (3 times at $200.00 each) so i made changes and after 8 years it doesn't bother me anymore. Apparently, its a lousy MB design.... imagine a molded rubber on an aluminum casing that serves an enormous torque? that small shock absorber doesn"t help much either.... Good luck...
Could you post a picture with details of the modification.
