  1. 2016 Factory radio replacement **RETAINING CAMERAS**

    Mobile Electronics
    Alright dudes, so I won some money on a scratch ticket during Christmas so I went with a radio upgrade finally. I really didn't want to loose my cameras, and after checking out some stuff on Crutchfield I found that radios with an iDataLink port should retain the cameras properly. I went ahead...

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Hey all, I've searched the web, this forum, etc... and all I can find are OEM roof rail installation instructions. I just received my eBay roof rails yesterday (really didn't want to go this round but at 1/3 of dealer cost, what the heck). The instructions that came with mine are in Chinese...

  6. 2nd gen AC system install?

    Maintenance and Service
    Am planning on replacing most of my AC system in steps. First evacuating, then several days later replacing under the dash, then several days later another part etc. The question is, will it be drive-able in between steps? Will any of these steps cause the condenser to lock? The belt to freeze?

    Would love to change out my 2019's head unit for something from Phoenix automotive or a Chinese head unit. Cant seem to find anything for the 5th Gen crv though. Even Crutchfield says it's not recommended and they don't show any available head units. Anyone know anything about this? I feel...
  9. Rear hatch - DIY Power lock install ???

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    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...

    Greetings & Introductions
    What's going on guys/girls. I recently bought a 2007 CR-V, and want to install some all terrain wheels/tires for the off-road look. Do I need to lift (don't really want) but what's a good combo (size wise) for a proper off-road look?
  11. Can I install a radio from a 2016-2018 Civic to a 2016 Honda CRV EX?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hey guys, we got a 2016 CRV EX. I'll like to get Carplay but would like to keep a Honda radio. I think some models from the Civics, Accords and others like 2016 to 2018 have Carplay. So the question is, can I just swap one of those radios in order to acquire Carplay? That way it would just be...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hi, I have bought a 2017 CR-V diesel and AWD in Thailand where I now live. This car has no dyn cruise control as i understand it has in the rest of the world. I am not happy about that since my Golf had that, and I loved it. It took the car down to stop and the the brake hold took over. At green...

    Hi, I’ve got a 2017 crv, and I’m interested in doing a diy block heater install. I found the official instructions online but it seems like the steps are excessive. Main reason for doing this is oil dilution and wanting to change coolant at (~60k miles). I’m not sure where else the plug and...

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I bought the Honda CR-V 2018 LX (i think it's the baseline version). I understand that one of the higher versions has Honda Sensing which slows down your vehicle if the car in front slows down. I called the dealership and they don't do anything aftermarket. Is it possible to install this...
