Have drive shaft out. Can i drive safely until reapirs to shaft are complete? on 2003 Honda CR-V

I drove it a short distance and it seemed fine. I cant complete the repairs for a few days possibly a week and am curious if I will do any damage by driving it with just front wheel drive.

With the rear shaft removed it IS just a FWD!!.... Drive on!.... Just don't go off roading........ Get it fixed before it snows!!

Thanks, I don't think I'll wait till winter but as long as it's safe a week or two at the most that will work for me.

Won't hurt anything. Rear diff is activated only when it sees a difference in front and rear wheel speed and that is dependent on mechanical pump 'driven' by the driveshaft. Right now , it's just along for the ride!
