Hi all was just wondering if it is possible to remove the prop shaft and still use the car? I have a gen 3 CRV 2008 diesel

Yes, you essentially make it a front wheel drive by removing the propeller shaft but you will not have the same control as a four while drive. Also, you will have somewhat of a burnout whenever you accelerate suddenly or when going up hills. Also be careful when approaching corners. I did this with my 1997 crv a few years ago and it was manageable.

I ran my '97 for a couple of years without a shaft. It had lousy traction in the snow and rain but otherwise drove well enough. It might affect the VSA system though. It may activate a lot more since the front wheels will be slipping more on slippery roads. But it will still work, since we have two other Hondas with VSA that are front wheel drive.
