    Hi all, Currently have 19inch rims on the CR-V but fed up of harsh ride and only getting only 9k miles out of a set of front tyres which cost a fortune being 19inch tyres. Seriously considering moving to 17inch rims to improve the ride and reduce tyre cost. Has anyone else done this and if so...

    Hello Fellow CRV Owners, Because my mechanic close up his garage, I have been searching for another mechanic. My manual states to change it every 3 years. Almost every mechanic I am calling wants to know why I need to change it out regardless of how long ago it was changed. So far two...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I bought genuine Honda rear diff. fluid and a pump because I wanted to change it myself. But as I got oil change yesterday at the mechanic, I asked him how much it'll cost for him to do it, just the labor. He mentioned $60 because he has to remove that black box (shown with red arrow) in the pic...
  8. changing 4 tires due to TPMS ?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I got one flat tire today and went to Goodyear tire shop. The guy there told me I need to change 4 tires due to the TPMS system that the indicator will still on if I just change one tire, since it would not be even. Is that the case or I got ripped off ? Thanks ! Honda CRV 2017. EX-L. FWD.

    I've recently changed my automatic transmission fluid on my 2003 Honda CR-V (07/10/2018 160,160 miles). At the time of changing it, I didn't know that I am unable to take all the fluid out of the transmission. I'm only allowed to take out about %40 of automatic transmission fluid. This means...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I just bought a 2007 LX with factory steel wheels that are pretty ugly, I'm afraid. I thought it would be no big deal to buy some used factory alloys and change them out, but my initial research raises questions, which are: Some companies (who sell wheels) say the existing Honda TPMS sensors...

    One of my headlight for my 06 CRV went out. It's a H1 bulb. I unplugged it, took out the rubber seal, and loosened that metal clip.

  17. Does changing Air Filter myself void Honda Care terms

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Newbie here, I was unfortunately persuaded by dealer to get the Honda Care when signing papers. Now I don't feel as bad because I think the Honda doesn't have a good electronic system and it may not survive as long as the drivetrain. The screen is a bit slow and lack some handy features. (I'm...

  19. TPMS and Changing Wheel Size ?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I was getting quotes on winter tires and considering dropping from 18" to 17" for winter rims / tires. One dealer said if changing tire size then a TPMS adjustment charge would need to be added to the install and when they are swapped in the spring. Another dealer said that is not correct as one...
