  1. Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I inherited a 2000 CR-V after my dad passed away a few years ago. He'd bought of of the bottle style after market hydraulic jack for it. Unfortunately, I just found out today that it doesn't lift the car far enough off the ground to put the spare on. I wasn't going to the dealership and...

    I'm trying to find a portable replacement jack for our 2006 CRV. The stock one is bent/ruined after my daughter tried using it on the side of the road. Didn't think it would be so difficult to find a scissor jack that raises at least 17.5" off the ground. Plenty of very large garage-only...

    I want to purchase a floor jack to raise the car for general maintenance. Have been using the tire jack for too long and want to move on from that for safety sake. However, the jack points are too narrow to accommodate both a floor jack and a jack stand at the same time. Where else in front can...

    The center jack point seems pretty far back to get my craftsman professional floor jack in the V to jack the front tires off the ground. Of course once that’s accomplished I’ll use jack stands. What kind of jack do you guys use. Thanks.

    I have tried search but does anyone know or have pics of the jack stand points used for the car to rest on if you car has running boards. The original points are now covered by running boards so Id imagine you have to use the frame rails but is there a specific spot? Our oem frame rails appear...

    Im did the winter tire swap in my garage on my CRV using the stock crappy scissor jack, found it flimsy and unstable. Anyone here purchase aftermarket ones that can swivel the handle and can anyone recommend (especially the ones frm canada) a good brand. tia

    There's a Jack lift point on the front and rear of the car. And one by each wheel. When lifting the car in the front to put jack stands, how can I lift the car without scratching the front center mount point and therefore potentially generating rust? Normally, for added safety I put chokers...

    2000, 215k, auto. Daughter's pile of crap is driving me nuts. Been fighting the 5 misfire codes since Fall. Progressively worse (unnoticeable before, but you really feel it now). Timing mark is now jumping pretty good (yes, jumper installed). Averaging it, the dizzy is in the middle of the...

    Our cars have a nice, sleek, underside. The consequence? All the places seasoned DIY-ers might have jacked up the car, like subframe bolts or control arm bushings are all covered up. Previous CR-V's had nice reinforced plates at the front and rear of the vehicle. Ours? Not so much. My...

    Anybody put their '17 up on jackstands yet? I need to install my splash guards, and since I don't have a death wish, will be using a real jack and jackstands instead of the widowmaker in the trunk. Anybody spot the best jack and jackstand points? I have a jack saddle-weld adapter, but prefer...

    First opportunity to use this jack to do the winter tire changeover here in AK. ( Defender xt to general Altimax winter. recommend both) the jack is way too short at jacking points to lift vehicle off ground enough to take tire off. even with a 4x4 under jack still too short. resorted to a 6x6...

    Anyone have photos or a diagram of floor jack points? I'm aware of the front pad, rear pass, and side pinch welds. But I'm looking for photos of safe spots like the frame, knuckles, etc. Anyone got a picture since it's worth a thousand words?
  14. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Why does the 2016 Touring not have an audio input jack to the sound system? Is there a way to input to the sound system other than Bluetooth?
  15. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    The 2013 owners manual shows the side rail jack points for the included scissor jack, and where you would place jack stands when using a floor jack. But it never defines the safe/approved jack points for actually lifting the front or rear with a floor jack. I downloaded a few pages from the...

    How high a jack do I need for my 2004 to change a tire. My original jack broke and I can't find this spec anywhere. I just need something for emergencies and don't want to pay a ton.

    I would like to have my front power jack to be on all the time, has anyone done this? I can figure out how to but I was wondering if anyone has already done it.

    Hi guys, I'm wanting to lift the front and rear of my 2014 CR-V to do some maintenance on it. I want to lift the front of the car up so I can slide some pieces of 2x10s under them to give it a little clearance underneath for some maintenance. the same for the rear. I've asked several dealers...
  19. Maintenance and Service
    Hi all, I was able to change my rear differential fluid without having up the CRV, also did my transmission fluid. I know there's a jack area on the front, but what about the rear? I currently have a trailer hitch that covers the rear hook so that's kind of off limits. Is there an area near...

    A while back my brother broke the aux cord jack inside of the port in my 2007 crv. In the model I own it is located within the front center table/console so in an attempt to get it out I had to take apart the entire console and I got out the port for the jack. Now however I think that because of...
