You can get around if you have to, but it's not advisible. I know some other vehicles that are FWD and have AWD that some owners have done this and removed the fuse/relay that controls the AWD function. But with todays cars electrical systems all integrated it isn't worth it.


as tom said, you CAN, but it isn't advisable, I, personally, would only turn to that route to get it home, or to a mechanic if no other option was available. you risk damaging your transmission, not to mention the electrical components. I, personally, have removed a driveshaft completely, just to get a friend's truck home before, when he snapped one of his U-joints.
