Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
My '99 has a bad drive-shaft. I removed it today and noticed that you can turn the shaft, when one front wheel is off the ground, but both rear wheels are on the ground. It is not easy to turn,, but it is not that hard to do w/a 1' long screwdriver.
How is the rear dif supposed to work?
