    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V

    I have discovered a coolant leak where the water outlet (19315-PR4-A01) bolts to the head on my 01 CRV.

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    After a week or two of temps in the high 90's, I noticed that the rubber gasket around the top of the driver's window was sagging. I took it to the dealer thinking it could be popped (or at least glued) back into place. Apparently not, as they had to order a new gasket that will require them...
