  1. Gen 1.5 Fog Lights Confusion

    Exterior
    So, I want fog lights. because I literally live in a place with fog, and I have crappy night vision. I have a basic 1999 CRV AWD. The bumper conversions to the Japanese model that includes them costs over 1k on ebay now - that's crazy. Standard bumper replacements are like $80 on Amazon. Why is...
  2. Towing terms confusion

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    There seems to be some confusion, including on my part, about what various towing capacity terms mean and how they’re calculated. I’ve learned that there are several towing and hauling capacities and limits, and each is calculated differently. Maximum Load Limit is the total weight of the...
  3. Transmission fluid confusion

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello, it's been a while since I've posted here. Got B13 on my MM so thought I'd look into how much that was going to cost me. The local Honda dealer quoted $299 for a flush, using a flush system. I read the sticky in this forum from 2008 in which Honda doesn't support that, so I wondered if it...
  4. 2013 CR-V DAB Aerial Shark Fin Antenna confusion (UK SPEC CRV)

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi, First of all, I know that this is a USA based site, and from what I can tell, you do not even have DAB over there, only Sat / XFm Radio. But hopefully you can help shine some light on my issue! My wife just got her CR-V recently, over here in the UK the specification trims are slightly...
  5. 2004 Crv instrument light confusion.

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all. I'm having car go in limp mode but no engine or mil light cone on. So I've removed the instrument panel and one bulb was missing but I've shine a light in there and that's the handbrake light? So I've shone a light in all the other holes and no engine light appears to be there...
  6. Radio code confusion

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I bought a CRV from the States in the Dominican Republic, left the lights on, and bam, radio error! I don't know the original owner and have no idea which dealership it was bought at. I'm so frustrated that a built-in anti theft thing is keeping me away from my music. After 3 months of no music...
  7. Honda 0W20 Confusion

    Maintenance and Service
    I have read the threads here and the links to BITOG. Right now if you look at H&A's website they show 3 0W20 oils for 2010-2011. Ultimate Honda 0W20 silver bottle, 0W20 blend black bottle and a 0W20 case special with a good price but no bottle picture. If I read this right the black bottle is...
  8. Maintenance confusion

    Maintenance and Service
    Is it safe to not do any kind of maintenance on your car and just wait for the service/wrench light to come on? I own a 2009 CRV and have never grasped how often I should bring my car in for service or how often I should change my oil. I've been told the usual, where you should change oil...
  9. sorry, but I can't find out how...

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I feel really stupid, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to start my own thread. I wanna ask what the maximum torque the rear wheels can get is, but I can't! If someone can tell me how, that would be extremely helpful! (and I wouldn't mind if someone told me what the torque is, but...
  10. Fog light confusion?

    Problems & Issues
    I'm trying to order fog lights to DIY install, but here's the problem, my V is an 03', and online I found the following fog light kits... 04' CRV fog light part 08V31-S9A-112 is sold as fitting the 02'-04'. Also part 08V31-S9A-110 which claims to fit the 03'... looking at the install...
  11. '99 AWD Rear Diff. fluid confusion

    Maintenance and Service
    The owners manual calls for CVT... The dealer says he puts Dual Pump Fluid in all years CRV's. Then looking up the Dual Pump stuff I see they have Dual Pump and Dual Pump II. There was a bulletin stating that Dual Pump and Dual PumpII were not compatable.. Then Honda took that back and said...

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Hello, Im a CRV newbie, but getting confused in the jargon! Im in the process of buying a 2001 CRV 2.0i West One. However I am a little confused. After reasearching on the net i understand there are 2WD and 4WD versions, is this right? if so, are there any visual differences between the two...
  13. Stereo Swap Confusion

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi guys, I've got an 08 CRV. I'm installing a new stereo in it. I've gotten the silver molding off around the gear selector, but am having problems getting the actual stereo out. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
  14. tire confusion

    Problems & Issues
    I need 4 new tires according to my dealer I see religiously every 3 months. My Bridgestone Duelers have taken me to 48,000 miles but I am reading that they don't have a very good reputation. I decided on Michelin Hydroedge but when I talked to my dealer/service/parts person, he doesn 't...
  15. To avoid Confusion ...

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Since '07 & '08's are G3, wouldn't it be better to have a seperate section for them? ... it seems to be more effective, induce more posts and organize searches easier too, as other forums have benefitted from this also. Just a thought for the Mods to consider. :)
  16. Hitch confusion

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    We're looking to get a hitch for our 07 CRV, but we're undecided about the 2" vs. 1.25". Seems like 2" is a bit of overkill for a bike rack, which will likely be its only use. The other issue is Hitchsource only lists the Curt #13555, which is 2". Etrailer lists the Curt model #12555, which...
