Everything on the car experiences some degrer of wear everytime you use it. Is this piece operating within the specs for which it was designed and built? You are assuming that it isnt. Since you have no idea at all what it is or what it is doing and have no idea what duty and life cycle it was built for . . .
Why not get all the facts before reaching for your pitchfork.
