The balancer is comprised of the metal pulley and a heavy rubber dampener that smooths out inherent engine vibration at the crankshaft.

It will be bolted down securely, but if the rubber starts to separate from the pulley - then it will wobble and vibrate badly. A diagnosis is very much in order, as soon possible. This pulley can break off.
