    The 2005 is over the CV joint on the curb side of the vehicle. It is a cussing good time and leaks oil all over everything. Not sure if the 2007 is in the same location.

    thanks for that....looks easy to change there!
    ive just managed to find an oil filter wrench to fit,76mm,14 flutes,£6.99 from halfords.....it doesn't say on the packaging that it fits honda but it fit perfect!
    i spent hours searching the internet for the right one.

    Hi guys, attached some pictures.

    You only have to replace the white part and the top O'ring, you only need a special Oil filter tool Honda

    So the tool is available from Halfords then?


    Also is the drain plug in an obvious and easy to get at position? and are there any special precautions to be aware of or is it an easy standard oil and filter change once the tool for the filter is bought.

    I wish all honda filters were there on top, here across the pond we have them in the bottom of passenger and get oil on the hands once you start unscrewing the filter off, really sucks. My other car, a BMW, has the same setup you guys have on your CRV, makes changing the filter a breeze, have fun gentlemen, ciao.

    Excellent write up, thanks it helped.
    Here's what I did:
    Didn't need to but I jacked up the front end onto axle stands.
    10mm bolts to take off the plastic cover to the sump bolt.
    Replaced oil sump bolt came off with a 17mm ring spanner,
    oil filter came off easily with the same tool from halfords, replaced filter and 3 seals.
    Even splashed out on an oil tray with a pouring spout, no oil spills pouring back into the oil can and took to the waste disposal.
    3 clips and you can change the air filter easy too.
    Oil was 5-30 semi synthetic as advised from the seller
