Defender td5. Since last week there's an occasional rattle and squeak noise and I think the crank damper pulley is beginning to fail - I can see it wobble about a mm or so every time there a rattle or a squeak.

I will fix it - but don't have the chance to do so immediately. What are the potential consequences of carrying on driving? I read somewhere on the forum that on tdi engines it may result in the need for a new crankshaft or a difficult repair of the woodruff key.

Is it the same on a td5?

Edited to add:
Land Rover original part is 530+VAT. does anyone have experience with the Bearmach replacement unit (approx 200+VAT)? I'm assuming the cheap sub 100 units on Ebay are rubbish and won't last.

I don't know if the TD5 one is keyed on, but you're right, the Tdi is.
Here's mine.

TBH you don't want an eccentric weight shaking the crank about.

Have you considered buying from Turner Engineering? Here's a link to your pulley https://www.turnerengineering.co.uk/lhg100580-damper-crankshaft-c2x20634759
They are extremely reliable with an excellent reputation and only stock quality parts. They are also very helpful if you call them for advice. The lady who answers the phone is Frida Turner. I have nothing to do with the company, I've just bought a hell of a lot of stuff off them.

I fitted a Turner Engineering unit. Or - more honestly - had it fitted as I didn't have the tools to remove the fan, nor a big long spanner to remove the crank nut.

Here is the old one - no Woodruff key.
