  5. Installing new struts on rear of 2010 Honda CR-V. How do I get the bottom bolt to lin

    Problems & Issues
    In my 10+ years of working on cars, nothing has stumped or frustrated me more than this.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Saw on Honda website, $299 for the heated steering wheel plus $47.20 for the switch. Anyone ever install this themselves, or worth paying the price for the dealership to do it? This is the ONE thing that I miss from my Jeep Cherokee! Definitely thinking about it due to "bone chilling" cold...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I got rear ended and while I was having to get my bumper replaced I decided to put in backup sensors I decided against the OEM accessory one since it's way overpriced and apparently hard to hear. If it was truly integrated into the stereo I may have considered it I bought this one which was...

  16. Installing Full LED housing from Touring onto EX-L

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So it looks like for less than $1600 you can get brand new LED Headlight replacement with custom plug and play harness for your EX-L trim and lower from this guy. It will be worth it over paying $3000 to go a trim above for all the other useless features and not any better 350watt sound system...
