    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V

  2. Changing rear diff. fluid, power steering, and brake fluid on 06 CRV

    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...
  3. Sourcing rear diff mounts

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hi, Any suggestions where I could get hold of rear diff mounts for my 2001? Also need oil. For some reason all my local garages are telling me they can sort it (which does need doing) but I need to get the parts. As they shouldn't be third party. Tried eBay which was a bit pointless and then got...

  5. Anybody's MM yet ask for anything but Oil, Tire Rotation, and Rear Diff?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'm just curious, has anybody's Maintenance Minder yet called for anything besides Oil Changes (and the associated inspections), Tire Rotations, or for AWD units, the Rear Diff fluid? Just curious when I can expect an MM notice for the cabin/engine air filters, or the CVT juice. (Would not...
  6. vehicle settings - diff for each remote?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I've only owned our new 2018 Touring model for a couple of weeks and still so much to figure out. One thing in particular are the two smart remotes. Are vehicle settings (driver seat position, door lock/unlock settings, Honda Sensing, etc.) per remote? I just got all the settings the way I...
  7. Rear diff fluid change

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Either the search function is not working or I'm having a brain fart. Just turning 15k and taking in for oil change and tire rot. Code for rear diff fluid change comes up as well. I know there was some discussion here about this and whether was needed this soon or not. Can someone enlighten me...
  8. Rear diff fluid change : proactive or wait for symptoms?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I have 66k miles on 2008 awd. Just the rear diff fluid changed a few years ago at the dealer. at the time when driving in reverse it would make a sound. My question is would it hurt the car to wait to hear the sound again or should I change it per the schedule. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G930P...
  9. Schedule for Diff Oil Change?

    Maintenance and Service
    What is the schedule for changing the oil in the rear differential. I had the 40,000 km service done today on my 2016 CRV and the Dealership wants to change the rear differential oil at the 50,000 km Service for $75.00 AUD. $75.00 seems to be big dollars to me just to suck/drain out and...

  11. Rear diff fluid interval

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'm at 13,500 miles and have maintenance minder code a16 which calls for a rear diff fluid change. Is this really right that this needs to be changed this often? My pickup calls for the rear diff fluid to be changed at 100,000 miles.....why would the crv's need to be changed so often? My driving...

  13. Is there anything wrong with changing the ATF/Rear Diff Fluid more than recommended?

    Maintenance and Service
    6 months ago, I drained/ filled the ATF on my '14 LX at 35K miles. However, the dealership sold me an extra bottle of ATF that I can't return for a I currently have 1.5 bottles. I honestly don't want these bottles sitting around my garage for the next 2 years. I'd rather buy...
  14. 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...

    Travelling east on I94 near Minneapolis heard a loud bang and then bang,bang,bang until I pulled over on the shoulder. There was a hole about the size of a quarter in the rear diff casing. Honda tried to say it was an external cause while my Insurance took the old diff apart and said it was...

    Problems & Issues
    Hello all, I am new and have serched the P2422 threads already. With no help yet.

    Maintenance and Service
    Hey All, I own a 2011 EX-L 4wd that I bought CPO back in 2014. The paperwork stated that they did a rear diff fluid change at 33k miles. We now have 64k miles and I have never seen subcode 6 ever show up. Should I just do it or wait until the subcode lights up? Thanks, Lew
  20. Gen4 rear diff fluid change interval, MMI history

    Maintenance and Service
    I have a 2012 CR-V and was wondering about MMI intervals in general and in particular with respect to the rear diff fluid. I know people recommend that the rear diff fluid be changed every 15k to 20k miles, but I'm wondering how often people see the B16 code on their MMI. I got my first B16...
