  1. CRV Gen 1 5sp manual - correct clutch disengagement height?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Got my CRV with the hydraulics on the clutch leaking, the clutch disengagement height had been previously fiddled with. I like a low clutch engagement, easier on your knees and easier to feel the engagement point. The service manual has the engagement point at 34mm/1.5" from the lowest pedal...

  4. Tailgate height

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I can't be the only 6ft crv owner who hates how the tailgate opens too low?!? I don't understand how / why Honda made such a ergonomic oversight. Does anyone have an idea how to get the tailgate to open a little higher? Many smaller / lower cars have tailgates that open much higher so Honda has...

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hi, I'm new here. I am a longterm Honda Civic sedan leasee, ready for a 2016. However, my wife has a bio-mechanical issue that would be better served by a higher-off-the-ground passenger seat. My thought is to consider the 2WD CRV. I called Honda Customer Service but they were unable to help...

    Maintenance and Service
    I'm looking to start doing my own oil changes and rotations. I see a few 3-ton floor jacks with ~18" max height on sale here and there. Is this sufficient to clear the wheels off the ground? It's occasionally cheaper than Harbor Freight's 3-ton jack. Thanks!

    I have an 05 diesel crv and last night I noticed the lights were a bit low, so I tried to use the interior adjuster switch to raise them, but is wasn't working. The light on the switch doesn't seem to be working either. I had a quick look through the manual so see if there is a dedicated fuse...
