  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 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...

    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...

    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?
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  14. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    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...

    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...

    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!

    Hello everyone. I did a search but I can't really find a definitive answer. I have a 2015 CR-V but I think the jack points would be the same as a 2014. Anyway the top of the scissors jack that came with the vehicle is relatively flat but the manual says to place it under a 3 inch wide x 1 inch...

    Hi, I'm about to do a complete brake job on my G3 CRV. I'm going to rotate the tires and flush the brake fluid at the same time so I want to pull all of the wheels off at once. Obviously I can jack the car up at the designated spots but since I plan on lowering onto jack stands, this method...

    Are there any DIY instructions on how to install an auxiliary input jack on my stock 2005 audio unit?
