Hello, I have a loud whirring noise coming from below the centre console.

It's the exact same sound as described in this youtube video.

He says its the bearing and not the rubber mount and he had to replace the entire drive shaft.

Can someone please expand on this issue for me? It is absolutely necessary to replace the entire part? Seems expensive!
It does sound like a bad bearing noise.
If it were the rubber mount you would most likely hear a knocking noise from under the center armrest. You can check the bearing mount by crawling underneath and seeing if there is excessive play in it.
