Commuting 100miles per day round trip. Bought the car 2 days ago. T-case whining pretty loudly and making that "bad bearing noise" between 4-10mph.
Found a replacement but cannot afford it till a few more paychecks come in as rent is due, etc.

My question is: How long can the bad t-case be driven on and will anything catastrophic happen if driven on for too long?
I can replace it in a few weeks. But that's about 1500miles out.
New to owning an awd vehicle.
Used to frw, rwd or 4x4.

"T-case" as in transmission? Have you checked the fluid level in your transmission?
And do you have any maintenance records?

Transfer case
Transmission shifts n drives just fine.
I could try topping off the transfer case though I suppose before I get too crazy.
I'm 100% certain that the transfer case has a bad bearing or two though.

Do you mean the rear differential?

I don't think the CR-V has a separate transfer case, at least not like a traditional 4x4.

That 'transfer case' is part of the transaxle assembly at the front of the car, and I believe it is lubricated with the transmission's fluid. Is that where your nose is coming from? I haven't heard of one going bad.
