  1. Repairing dented front bumper in 2009 CR-V EX... Easy to do?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Fellow CR-V owners; My wife managed to run into the garage frame with our 2009 CR-V, putting a nice dent in the lower right side of the (plastic?) front bumper. The dent goes back a few inches with about an 8 inch crease. Looking at it, I am wondering if it can simply be popped out? Is there...
  2. Checking oil level - the easy way?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So was doing my routine checks/fills including the oil. I was trying to find just the right light to check the orange tip (as mentioned in countless other threads) and squeezed it with the paper towel to start over when I may have stumbled upon the easy way (was an ah-ha moment for me - maybe...
  3. Easy to replace the headlight lenses on 2018 CRV EX?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    This is my first posting on Honda Forums. If I'm doing it wrong, please correct me. I noticed the plastic headlight lenses have four or five tabs at the top of the lens where they snap onto the black plastic behind it. It seems to me that might allow easy removal and replacement of the plastic...

    Problems & Issues
    I recently bought a 97 CRV with 147,000 miles from a friend for $100. Original owner, dealer maintained mostly and in good condition overall. I don't drive very often but she just wanted to get rid of it and I figured it was cheaper than cabs and rental cars. I smelled coolant burning and...
  10. Oil Change Was Easy

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Oil change was easy peasy you don't even need to lift the car. The oil filter is right behind the front bumper, very near the front of the car and right above the cover super easy to reach. The Oil Drain Bolt is right behind it about 1 foot, super easy to reach as well. Unbolt the drain plug...
  11. Easy DIY - adapt Jetta TDI GorillaGear cargo liner (or other material) to CR-V trunk

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I really liked the Gorilla Gear mats I got with our 2009 Jetta TDI - they have a carpet-like surface, are quiet, and have corner dividers with Velcro-like bottoms you can arrange to hold things in place. The closest I could find for the CR-V is the Lund Cargo Logic (which might be made by the...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Is there an easy way to switch bluetooth connected phones? Both phones are paired to the CR-V. It appears to favor the last connected phone. I can not find an easy way to switch between my wife's phone and mine when we are both in the car. The only way I have found is to have her disconnect...

  14. Easy adding Tweeters to LX

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Howdy, Since I got the '14 CRV my biggest compliant has been the sound quality, especially on the LX. I got the LX because it was a damn good deal used with less than 30k miles, with roof rack, all weather tech mats, and tinted windows. But the sound was horrible. I purchased a pair of alpine...
  15. The 1.5T looks very easy to work on!

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    In the market for a new car, and I'll probably get a CR-V, as long as it passes the Wife Acceptance Test. (I have my eye on an EX-L in either Basque Red, Obsidian Blue, or Modern Steel) Coming from my '04 Passat 1.8T Wagon, (now with 162.5k miles, a tired interior, rattles, and some oil...

    Maintenance and Service
    Girlfriend's 2006 CR-V is making noise, trying to diagnose the problem. The right front tire makes sort of a low thumping/clicking type noise under "easy" braking. Like if you're applying 10% brake pedal and you're 40 feet from a stop sign and there's no cars ahead of you. The noise happens...
