  1. Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hey guys and gals, I’m looking to lower my 2012 CR-V on coils and I found Godspeed MonoSS coils. I was wondering if anyone has used them and if so what their experience was? How’s the bump harshness, how does it affect handling, and are they worth the money? Thanks!
  2. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hello! I'm trying to find appropriate crossbars for the roof of my 2012 Honda CR-V and just keep striking out. Maybe I have too many incompatible requirements: 1. I'm going to be putting a rooftop tent on them, so the bars need to be straight from one end to the other (not a curved line). 2...
  3. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello, I am new to the forum so please help me out if I am in the wrong place. I bought this CRV off craiglist last year around 62K and have been using it extensively. After some fairly rough mountain roads, I noticed a whine while driving. I initially thought it was a rock under my pad, but...
  4. Mobile Electronics
    Hey All I have a 3rd GEN CR-V, 2012 with Automatic transmission that came with the 6 cd-changer and USB in the glove box. I needed a bluetooth connection for phone, so i bought a HIZPO nav from aliexpress. Installation is pretty smooth, one thing though - it didn't came with a plug for the OEM...
  5. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I've got 144,000 on my 2012 EX-L and the valves are getting louder. Does anyone have instructions on how to adjust the valves? I couldn't find anything in the forums. Thanks

    Have a 2012 CRV and the AWD light on the dash has started coming on. Will start driving and after a few miles the light will come on. I got one of those code readers but even when the light is on it doesn't throw a code on the reader. I have down loaded both service bulletins that deal with the...

    Just acquired a used 2012 CRV. I'm wanting to make some upgrades. I have an EX with cloth interior (which i hate) and a factory radio non-gps (which I hate)... looking for upgrades.

    Yes! Success. I really think this should be a sticky... he hem (mods) JK. So I got it figured out with everything hooked up and working. Here are the parts needed to get your CRV 2012 oem backup camera working with any Head unit that has RCA input for camera. *I have no kickback from any...

    2012 4th gen LED headlight bulbs (updated - again) After researching a fair amount, reading countless reviews (knowing some are fake), I may have found a pair of LED headlight bulbs that work - with DRLs . Bulbfacts.com noted that the "Kilakila H4" (who thinks of these names?) were compatible...
  10. Performance Modifications
    I just changed the spark plugs in my 2012 CR-V, which has close to 85,000 miles on it, with a new set of NGK's. The old spark plugs look to be in relatively good condition, except for the area around the ceramic part of the pkug. Please see the attached images. Is the discoloration due to...

    As the title says all, is there any hope for the halogen headlight folks. I've looked all over the place for a kit, but cannot find anything or anyone who makes one. Anyone on here have any good leads or thoughts on where to find one.
  12. Accessories
    I just installed a Honda OEM spoiler on my 2012 CR-V. In doing so I noticed that when I mounted the high-mount brake light on the spoiler it doesn't seem to fit flush with the spoiler. There tends to be a gap on the top left and right sides of the high-mount brake light. Basically, the area on...
  13. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Can anyone tell me or direct me to a video or pictorial description of how to remove the inside panel of the lift-gate (4 gen/2012)? I want to add some sound deadening material. I tried a little while back and simply could not get it to budge (fearing I would crack something) Thanks!
  14. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    It's been just shy of 6,000 miles and 10 months since my last oil change, and all of the car's oil changes have been done at the Honda dealership from which I bought the car new. Today, during an hour and a half, about 60-mile trip, I checked the remaining oil life on the MID, and it said 50...
  15. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello, I purchased a factory OEM replacement for the amp. I have the 7 speaker + sub + external amp model (EX-L with Navi). I know the factory amp is located slightly below and behind the gear shift. Can someone tell me how to access the factory amp? I can’t seem to remove the panel/trim that’s...
  16. Greetings & Introductions
    Hi Guys, Just became the owner of a 2012 CRV EX-L and looking for advice to optimize the vehicle for my use. I use it mainly to commute to and from work on I4. Here are my initial questions, and I will be combing the forum for answers, but please contact me directly if you have any experience...
  17. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I just bought a used CRV and I can't seem to access the wifi info or delete the previous owner's phone, or add mine. Anyone?
  18. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I get a buzzing noise when the heat at the max setting, if I set it one detent cooler noise goes away. Any ideas on cause.
  19. Mobile Electronics
    After a few days of planning and a modest amount of experimentation, I finally got my 2 meter transciever installed in the new (to me) V. I had the same rig in my previous 2001. However, given the totally different design of the 2012, the coax, wires and radio location would be a totally...
