More, the axle shaft is what keeps the 2 half of the wheel bearing together. That's why that big nut in the wheel hub is torqued to 250 ft-lb. Run the car without any half-shaft, and the bearing would split in a matter of meters.
WIS shows that about towing :
Towing, one axle raised
During towing, when one axle is above ground, the speed must not exceed 50 km/h. Cars with automatic transmission must not be towed more than 50 km.
Towing, all wheels rolling
In this case, there is no technical limitation. Cars with automatic transmission must not be towed more than 50 km.
Dy no for 4wd required. If using a 2WD dyno, disconnecting the XWD control module does not help as the difference in speed over the Haldex clutch would be very high, and this would damage it.
You will have to find a dolly or a trailer.
