Hi. I live in the UK and own a 2010 crz 6 speed manual. last night my offside (right) driveshaft / cv axle snapped in half.. struggling to find a replacement part. (left and right aren’t interchangeable are they? because i can find loads of left ones) do any other models fit or does anyone know where i could get one? thanks.

I just checked for the availability, in the U.S., for my 2013's driveshaft, and the right side shows "discontinued." You can use this list as a quick reference to match up a used one from another model year, if it comes to that, but the "SZT" in the part# tells me that the part is unique to the CR-Z and not shared with other honda models (as I thought maybe the Fit would be a close match, but not the case.)

Right side driveshaft:
2016: manual) 44305-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-J00
2015: manual) 44305-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-A01
2014: manual) 44305-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-A01
2013: manual) 44305-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-A01
2012: manual) 44305-SZT-G01 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-A01
2011: manual) 44305-SZT-G01 ; CVT) 44305-SZT-A01

Left side driveshaft:
2016: manual) 44306-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44306-SZT-J00
2015: manual) 44306-SZT-G51 ; CVT) 44306-SZT-A01
2014: manual) 44306-SZT-G50 ; CVT) 44306-SZT-A01
2013: manual) 44306-SZT-G50 ; CVT) 44306-SZT-A01
2012: manual) 44306-SZT-G01 ; CVT) 44306-SZT-A01
2011: manual) 44306-SZT-G01 ; CVT) 44306-SZT-A01

hey, sorry to hear that. it was quite an ordeal. i ended up having to buy the only at the time available manual rhd right driveshaft i could find on all the breakers sites for about £190. I also accidentally bought one for a CVT for about £140 first which surprisingly definitely did not fit so don’t do that..

left and right deffo not interchangeable, be careful when ordering online to check if it’s from a left or right hand drive (front right driveshaft from a left hand drive would not fit). good luck, sorry i could not be of much help

Thanks - ended up paying Honda for it and it cost mega bucks. Could not get the RHS anywhere.

I've got the LHS now from a breakers, I'm pretty concerned though as I have no way of verifying if this part is any good or not (there's some rust at the hub end) and I can't afford to buy another from Honda. I'm also concerned that the other side is going to end up the same way, with no way of telling how rotten the other shaft is under the damper.

Does anyone have any ideas for prevention etc... please. FYI I paid close to £1500 GBP for a flippin half shaft.

Hi, bro mine is broke tonight aswell and for right hand side. How long was it that you could find any. Could you please do me a favour and have a look that if there is one available. I am trying but i am confused and don't know. Its 2010 Manual.
So please if you could help me.
Thanks.
Ps. I am in UK. Scotland

If you find a good second hand one I would..

Take the rubber damper off. Aggressively remove any rust or corrosion underneath and treat it to kill it.

If the shaft has been eaten away at all build up any missing metal with decent weld until the shaft diameter is back to stock or a bit more.

Clean it all off to retain a reasonable balance. Paint repaired shaft with proper rust proofing etc. (Forget the damper)

Probably a good idea to do this with all our driveshafts even unbroken ones on our cars before they break.

Guys do you have exact photo which damper should be taken off? Just want to prep myself for the job...
Here you go! It’s the black thing in the middle. In this picture, which I found on Google (not mine), the damper is moved to the side to reveal the rust. The diameter is drastically reduced due to the rust, as you can see.

If that was mine I would protect disassemble the UJ etc's to get that middle bit out.

Then shot blast that middle section, then build up quality weld in that groove and try and regain some strength.

The fact it is intact should hold it straight etc while you build weld up. May not work of course..

You might even be able to build sleeve over it for extra strength..

Luckily, it’s not mine. As I stated, it’s a picture from Google. However, if mine would look like that, I would replace it, because I wouldn’t be able to do the things you name. ;)

Its 2010 and its manual.
here is the correct one although it’s on the more expensive side. i would recommend messaging everyone breaking a manual crz on ebay and ask if they have one available. becareful not to buy a cvt shaft by mistake: the manual driveshafts are much shorter.

I have been working on Hondas for a long time and I cannot believe I've never seen or heard of this before but sure enough searching for this brings up a plethora of horror stories and horror images. And Honda is all 🤷‍♂️"meh".

Great info, I'll be removing these rust traps from now on.

Thanks for the help.
I found one but then it has bad thread where nut is fixed. So now i am getting mine broken one repaired i hope so it will good.
But its really bad that this kind a main spare parts aren't available. I wasn't expecting this at all. I know its not a common car in UK but still.
