Propshaft centre bearing fail - dangerous?

Hi all, I have a D4 on hire from a well known LR ‘specialist’ and I’m having a few problems with them. No further details here as the situation may develop and I don’t want to prejudice any future action.

My question is: the centre prop bearing is completely fubar’d and is klonking when under load. Is it dangerous to drive with the bearing like this? I know it can damage the driveline but that’s not my concern - it’s the potential for a high rpm component failing under my Censored I am concerned about!

I would not!

Prop swap is an hour tops with good tools

Knackered propshaft bearing is now an MOT fail, so it could be argued that the car is unroadworthy in this state. Crying or Very sad
