What has happened is that the outer ring of the balancer had broken free from the rubber that connects it to the hub. This outer ring is what the belts ride on. The rattling that you are hearing is the slipping of this outer ring on the hub. Last time I replaced mine it cost me about $200-$250 CAD and of course requires a puller. Would I drive it like this? I don't recommend it although I have seen some people drive it for over a week like that. Taking chances that it flies apart and damages other things are not my cup of tea. A little advice here...If the crank sensor has not been changed in that car, spend the extra bit of cash and get it done because you have to pull the balancer to get at it and being a 92, you are living on borrowed time, they all eventually fail!
