  2. 2012 Factory Spoiler Gap?

    I just installed a Honda OEM spoiler on my 2012 CR-V. In doing so I noticed that when I mounted the high-mount brake light on the spoiler it doesn't seem to fit flush with the spoiler. There tends to be a gap on the top left and right sides of the high-mount brake light. Basically, the area on...

    Problems & Issues
    Hi Folks, I'm owner of CR-v 2018. I bought my vehicle this year and last month I noticed big and weird gap on right lower corner of rear door. Gap on this side is bigger than the other side.

  5. Windshield replacement question - gap between front cowl and window

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Hi, Had to replace windshield on my CR-V 2010 due to crack. There is now significant gap between cowl cover and windshield. Is it normal, what is the fix? I assume clips were broken during replacement. Also wanted to know is there normally any adhesive between cowl cover and glass? Thanks
  6. 2010 - Gap in the back of the air filter housing.

    Problems & Issues
    Replaced the air filter. It's not complex, but didn't go back together easily and my fingers kept finding that there was a gap at the back. There was no way to close it up. And that gap is above the filter element, so fresh air can flow right past the filter! How can this be? The filter is...
  7. 2017 CRV Hood & Hatch: Panel Gap issues!!

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    So far, my wife and I like our new AWD-EX-L CRV picked up last Saturday. I only have 2 issues, 1st one being 190 HP is still under-powered for a vehicle this size & weight. But my bigger issue is the size of panel gaps on our hood & hatch. I have read a few others on this forum comment on same...
  8. Michelin Defender - Rim Lip Gap

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    2013 CR-V LX: I just had Michelin Defenders installed at Costco yesterday, and noticed that the rim lip protrudes more than with the OEM tires, i.e., a larger gap between the sidewall and inner rim face. Any one else notice this? Just wondering if it's normal, or if the tires are on the low...
  9. GAP insurance at $595. Is it worth it?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    While purchasing CRV 2016 Touring recently I also got GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) at $595. The finance guy told me that if GAP is not used during the loan period, the total amount ($595) will be refunded!. Is that true? It was hard to believe for me but he convinced me somehow to purchase...
  10. Front Bumper Gap - Need Advice!

    Problems & Issues
    Just bought an 07 CR-V and noticed there is a small gap between the front left headlight and the bumper. No accidents, but it does have aftermarket fog lights. I'm thinking the bumper wasn't properly reinstalled. It looks like there is a small clip that the bumper should slide into when I push...
  11. Wheel gap coilovers

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    So I've been thinking about it for a while and I finally decided to buy coils for my 05. Most of the ones I've seen online run $600-$1200 but they also have up to 32 adjustable settings. I'm not looking to drop it to the ground as I only need to lower it about 2.5" to get rid of the wheel gap...

  14. CRV 2014 huge gap in console

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Hey there! This is my first post and I need some advice. I bought a brand new Honda CRV 2014 EX-L and afterwards I noticed the terrible arrangement of the center console, see pictures. My first question if a gap/clearance of about 1cm in the interior should be tolerated or not. Usually there...
  15. Back to Honda after 17 year gap

    Greetings & Introductions
    Back in the day I had a Honda Integra which I really enjoyed. Then for some reason I got tempted by a BMW 3 Series. After two 3 Series and three 5 Series Beemers, I decided I had had enough of the money-pits that all my Beemers seemed to have turned into, so came back to Honda and my first...

  19. 2012 - Keep losing things between the seat and the centre console

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    Does anyone else keep losing things between the seat and the centre console? I've dropped a number of coins etc. down there. Some I was able to spot and flick out with a stick. The rest fell into a deeper cavity never to be seen again. It seems that there are openings into the frame area...
  20. Windshield wipers leave a triangular "gap" and its driving me crazy!

    Hey all, I recently had the windshield wiper blades replaced on my CRV because the old ones were not in the best of shape. I actually had a problem with the original blades not covering the whole windshield (they left a small triangle of water in the middle), but my bf messed around with them...
