    Hi all just got an MOT advisory for my HR-V 1600 2003 model, wear in the prop shaft centre bearing.

    It is not bad however I am going to change it.

    Can anyone point me to where I can get one?

    My garage man says "dealer part"................ anyone know better?

    Thanks

    You can contact our partners @Holdcroft Honda for that.

    However you won't be able to avail the club discounts as you need to be at club member rank to get that.

    They cannot get one, can anyone else help?

    Surely there is a bearing supplier somewhere?

    No joy. I am thinking, cam you only get this as a unit (ie prop shaft and bearing) - does anyone know? There are a few from scrap yards but trouble is, will they be worn as well. I told the guy at the garage that it was not a problem cos its oly part time 4WD but he said no its full time 4WD?

    Must be quite bad to fail an MOT. Depends on the garages understanding of the MOT test and of the brand/car itself. Each tester will have there own opinion on what is (excessive) and therefore a fail. It's maddening really but something that you or I would say should fail an MOT test generally doesn't. I.E a tyre can be bald on the edges but if the central 3/4 has 1.6mm of tread it's happy days. Likewise with discs. They can be fully corroded. So long as there not cracked or have visually failed/ very thin etc. If the brake efficiency is ok. It's a pass for you. I've never replaced a prop centre bearing or support. But I'm not doubting it needs replacing. As a fly on the wall I would be interested to see what the garage is seeing and as to why they failed it on an MOT test.

    To be honest over the 12 years that I owned my HR-V I watched it go through every test but never saw the tester check the prop shaft.

    Hey folks it was an MOT ADVISORY, not a fail. Did not even think it came under the test, not being a safety feature - a bit like the clutch . Am I correct in thinking that the bearing and shaft are one unit?

    As far as I was aware, they don't come separate?
