    My searches onsite have so far not pulled up everything on the disassembly so I thought I would frame all the questions here.

  19. 3rd gen cargo shelf FREE to a good home

    Trading Post
    I no longer have my 2009 CRV, and I just found my barely-ever-used grey cargo shelf in the rafters of my garage! Pretty sure it will fit any 3rd gen (2007-2011) CRV. Hopefully someone can use it. Due to size, I'm assuming shipping is not cost effective, so local pickup might be best, unless...
