    Mobile Electronics
    Hey All I have a 3rd GEN CR-V, 2012 with Automatic transmission that came with the 6 cd-changer and USB in the glove box.

  2. 2016 Factory vs Dealer Installed Leather?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    My local dealer says that his leather guy does a better job than the factory and for less money. Is that reasonable - that an EX w/his leather could be a better choice than an EX-L? Are their different features in an EX vs an EX-L or is it all about the leather? I'm about to do a search for a...
  3. Installed a 3rd party set of roof rails. Should I be worried about the trim?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Just installed a set of these: So it installs a bit different than the oem ones, as in the oem ones cover the entire piece of trim that you have to remove to install. With these rails I had to cut...
  4. Q: Oil Catch Can, anyone installed one?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    If you read about direct injected engines & turbos you learn pretty quick about pressures in the engine, intakes and how oil deposits will accumulated on the air inlets & on the back side of intake valves. The downside of direct-injection is fuel isn't cleaning this area. The conventional...

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V

    Took my CRV in to Honda last night and left it overnight. this morning they noticed the grinding and replace the actuator. This is my second actuator. He also said my cam tensioner was going bad so they change that and only charged me for the part, $90. does anyone know if the failed tensioner...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V

  8. Curt trailer hitch installed...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Just thought I would share a couple pics of my hitch that I installed the other day. Install was pretty straight forward - I also swapped the tailgate kick sensor for the hitch compatible version. Can't wait for the warmer weather to put my bike rack on and hit the trails!!
  9. May Have Installed Wrong Rotor?

    Problems & Issues
    I've got a 1998 Honda Crv, 2 wd, with 155K on the clock. I've been chasing a rough idle issue for some time and have replaced the distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires yet still experiencing the rough idle. I can feel a slight miss also at highway speed, though the mileage is generally 25 - 27...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Our brand new 2019 CRV Touring was sold to us with dealer installed door edge guards and I want them off. The salesman told us the guards are glued on and a lot of time and labor is required to take the off. Looking for guidance on how to remove the guards without damaging the doors and...
  11. Installed aftermarket running board

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Ok, Finally, I just got a running board, it is a aftermarket, which I think it looks better than Honda with less cost. I know many people says it is a useless and it's only cosmetic look. The reason I bought is for 2 reason. First is for my kids. They are 3 and 6yr old. They are okay to get...
  12. 2018 CR-V EX... Factory vs Dealer installed options and lane keeping

    Shopping & Test Driving
    All, I am looking at a 2018/19 CR-V EX AWD with back-up sensors and roof rails.. Well... in TX, AWD is not as prevalent as in colder areas, so finding one with the correct build out is a bit tough. What I have heard from one dealer is that you can't special order a build out from the factory...
  13. Installed Aftermarket radio and IMID and Radio not working

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    So I thought it would be a great idea to finally go and install my own Double din radio into the car. Once I completed all the wiring. The IMID and the radio both will not boot up. Am I missing something? Also the key fob will not lock the car. The car now only locks with the key in the ignition...
  14. Installed Ambient Light Accessory (& Glove Box Light)

    Here is my install log of Honda's Ambient Light Accessory on a 2018 CRV. While I was at it I decided to splice into the wire harness and run a wire to the glove box so I could have an illuminated glove box ... which the wife loves BTW. The passenger side ambient light wire runs right...
  15. Mishimoto Aftermarket Intercooler installed

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Mishimoto intercooler for 16+ 1.5t Civic's. This is just the intercooler, no piping kit. Intercooler comes with piping adapters to work with the stock 16+ civic intercooler piping. Passenger side is plug and play. Driver side requires modification as the holes for the bolt threads don't line...
  16. Installed Dash Cam - little different approach

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    When we got our new CRV, we used the dash camera off our old car on the CRV. The camera is a Vico-Opia 2 that I had it hooked up to Vico's Power-Plus battery management system on the old car but didn't want to bother with that on the CRV. In fact I was looking for a simple, hidden hookup with...
  17. 2006 2WD KYB Front Struts Installed

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I did another thread on the rear KYB rear struts. I am still happy with them a few months later, so I went ahead and got the front struts as well since the car has 130,000 on the original struts. It was a straight forward job. No need to even pull the brake calipers. Undo a 10mm bolt holding...
  18. OEM Cargo Liner Installed (complete)

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I posted a thread some months ago showing the OEM cargo liner installed. As you may know, the OEM cargo liner has three pieces: the piece that covers the rear seat seatbacks and the cargo floor, and one for each of the sides. At the time I had only installed the large piece that lines that...
  19. Question for those who've installed Quick Struts

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Monroe in my case, but I assume the question applies to all complete strut you need to torque the rod nut after installation? The instruction sheet included with the Monroes says to, but the Honda service manual makes no mention of this, and says only to torque the flange nuts on...
  20. Ever installed a passenger seat storage compartment? Thanks

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I currently have a 2000 CR-V and while stumbling on eBay I came across a passenger seat pull out compartment. I think it would be a cool to basically have an additional glove box. Has anyone done this I cant find anything online. It's been very cut and dry either has one or is doesn't? I would...
