Well,they steal ECUs,they steal entire engine/transaxles,and they steal HID
light systems from other brands of cars(Toyotas),so IMO,it's not such a
stretch to imagine that they may steal Nav systems or components of them.
Same goes for DVD systems.
Nav systems are new enough that there is not much of a track record of
their thefts,if any.
Call a couple of dealer's parts departments,and ask if there's been a
demand for replacements due to thefts.They oughta know.
It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so I can't phone any dealers
to ask exactly what SIZE the eight bolts on the Gen 1 propeller shaft
I haven't looked close, but I'm guessing 10 mm or 12 mm. I may be able
to buy a socket at NAPA today, but it's a long drive into the city, and
I can't take the car with me . . .
Anybody had theirs apart??
If there are a couple of _underscores_ hidden in my return address,
you'll have to remove them to reply . . . . Thanks.
Sorry for the lack of info,
It's for a 2000 CR-v, and the shop manual says 12 point. I actually
wrote it 12 point, then changed it to 16 point 'cuz I thought i read it
The propeller shaft on a CR-v runs to the back differential to provide
power if the front wheels start to slip. If I dismantle it, I wonder
what lube i should re-smear on the splines ? ?
