  1. 2009 CRV hatch and read drivers side door

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My hatch won't unlock nor will my drivers side rear door. I'm assuming it must be an actuator problem but is there anything else that could be causing it? Is the hatch lock somehow connected to the rear drivers side door? All three of the other doors work fine thanks for you inout

    We plan to obtain my wife's new (new to us) 2014 CRV EX-L in 1-2 weeks. During her test drive, she didn't notice if its rear hatch door is only manual or also has power lock system. U-Tubes videos keep showing a manual rear hatch door on 2014 models. My wife likes Power Lock (unlock) rear...

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    The rear hatch of my 2009 CRV is not working properly. Sometimes it opens and sometimes it doesn't. It doesn't matter if I try to use the key fob to unlock it or the door switch. Not sure if it is a problem with the switch itself. The switch has been replaced due to a rear collision we had a...

    My 2018 CR-V has 700 miles on it so no issues, but want to be prepared... I've searched this forum, YouTube, and Honda videos without finding an answer. In the event of a dead car battery, how do I open the rear hatch, say, to get my jumper cables from the spare tire compartment?

    I had my rear windshield repaired after I accidentally broke it. My insurance sent a company to come to my place and replace it, but there are some pieces trapped that are rattling inside the lower hatch door. The technician that did the repair said that they don't have hoses that thin to reach...

It is attached to a rear plate that can rotate/swivel. If the top and lower screws get loose and one falls off like it did...

    Problems & Issues
    Hello All, This is my first post so hopefully i'm not breaking any rules.
