  1. Recommend A Rear License Plate Frame

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V

  5. License Plate Frame

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I recently bought one of those thick rubber license plate frame "bumpers" and when I went to go install it I found that the plastic license plate bracket was drilled directly into the front bumper (through the paint, etc.). I'm assuming this was done by the dealer as Honda wouldn't install the...

    Performance Modifications
    The left front motor/transaxle mount on my 99 CRV broke (or rather, completely disintegrated) so I decided to replace both the right and left mounts. Left one was easy, but I can't figure out how to get the right one out from under the frame. Tried accessing from the top, but the air filter...

    I'm trying to find a neat way to route a wire feed to a Dash Cam. As well as tucking a wire in the headliner, can the trim covering the airbag on the A frame be removed to enable a wire to be hidden behind it? :confused:

    My CRV had airbags deploy in an accident. All bodywork is done, airbags replaced etc but the airbag lites are on.
