So as the title would suggest, my PTU went out again. Warranty over.
I've been driving it it less frequently and the fuse to the PTU is disconnected now - maybe put 150 miles since the "srvc AWD" light stayed on permanently - intermittent before. Question is - can I run without the driveshaft connected?
I don't want to end up driving it and have it lock up or something before I can fix it.
It is starting to make noise like an old 10 speed bicycle freewheeling when moving - noise gets faster with speed not engine RPM. It's for sure the PTU - the sound is audible from either side of the front, bearings are fine, CV's are fine etc...
