  1. First B16 and found oil leak

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Minder light came on with B16 at 14k miles on our 2017 touring. I was surprised I needed to replace the differential fluid which was fairly easy to do. I used oem fluid and crash washers. So did that, rotate tires and changed oil and filter. When I dropped the cover, I saw some oil drips on the...
  2. Service B16 for a 2016 Honda CR-V

    Maintenance and Service
    I am due for my second oil change on my 2016 Honda CR-V at 14,500 miles. The code that came up on the Maintenance Minder at 15% oil life is B16. I understand that 1 means tire rotation and 6 means replacing the rear differential fluid. The dealership told me that this will cost me a little over...
  3. B16 maintence light returns after diff fluid replacement

    Problems & Issues
    A few days ago I took my 2016 CRV AWD to the dealer for B16 service, as apparently they require the first change at 15k and then every 30k thereafter. The light actually came on when I was around 14,500. The maintenance info showed oil life at 50%, a 1 for tire rotation, and the 6 for the awd...
  4. 2015 EX Maintenance Minder Codes (B16)

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    As seen in the image, I'm getting MM code B16. I know the B is for the oil change that I'm due for, however, i'm not sure what the 16 sub-code is. Page 435 of the user manual, displays the various codes & sub-codes. The sub-codes, however, only go to 6 so what does the 16 mean?
  5. MM B16 changed to B1

    Maintenance and Service
    I have a 2014 CRV EX. Did the first oil change (A1) in October '14. After resetting the MM, the new code B16 appeared. I know that is what I need done at next service. Along the way I discovered an oil leak (separate thread). The dealer resealed Chain Case (the big cover), and replaced valve...
  6. B16 for $295.00

    Maintenance and Service
    Have I lost touch with reality or is it time to find place a new place to have my CRV serviced? $295 for a B16 service seems outrageous to me. What are others paying?
  7. How to reset MM for a Differential oil change (B16)

    Maintenance and Service
    Hi all, NOTE: The B16 indicator was NOT displaying. I did the diffy oil change to troubleshoot a riding issue. I just changed the differential oil on my 3rd gen '08 V and I can't seem to get to the menu where I can reset the counter for the B16 code. The oil change was a combination of disaster...

    I am putting a v-tec head on my 99 crv (5-speed b20z). I wanna know if anyone the horsepower and torque differences between a b16 and type R DOCH v-tec heads?
  9. B16 Transmission

    Performance Modifications
    Hi i'm new here. I don't know if this was asked before but can a automatic b16 trans fit on a 1gen crv? I'm assuming yes but just wanted to be sure. And has anyone have done this yet?
  10. 2008 CR-V B16 - which torque wrench should I buy?

    Maintenance and Service
    Recently at just a little over 20k miles my maintenance minder has come on with a B16. I have looked in the manual and found that this means a number of items. I called my local Honda Stealership (the one that wants me to change my oil at 5k miles minimum, but that is another thread) and tried...
