Hello everybody
I live in Germany so my English is not very good. I hope you understand my question or my problem.
the propeller shaft of my Acura Mdx 2008 is damaged. My question is: Is it possible to drive with a removed propeller shaft without damaging anything?
I don't get any parts for the vehicle here and have to import them from the USA first. The shipping time is about 3 weeks and I can't do without the car that long.

best regards
Darius

Yes. You will even continue seeing the system sending torque to the rear wheels as there is no feedback from the rear diff back to the ECU to report the propeller shaft is missing.

I would go easy on it while you are waiting for the new propeller shaft. Also note that there is a special procedure on the new propeller shaft installation, make sure the procedure is followed for proper installation.

In other words - don't speed on your autobahns! :)

Thank you for your answer 😊

Can you tell me what to consider when installing?

Maybe you have an installation Instruktion for me 😬

best regards
