  1. Recommend A Rear License Plate Frame

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I'm looking for a rear license plate frame that will provide for mounting the plate and providing cushion and protection so that it does not scratch the paint nor allow the plate to rattle when going over roads, closing the hatch, etc. Yet another instance where Honda has scrimped to save a...
  2. License Plate Bumper Protectors

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Anyone have one of those bumper protectors that are a frame for the license plate? I looked at one called the BumpShox XXL. I was wondering if people had pictures of it on their CR-V since I'm not sure if it will look good or if it will block the sensor. Thanks! I can only park on the street so...

  4. 2017 CRV - No Taillights or License plate lights

    Problems & Issues
    All the other lights and accessories appear to be working. The wife phoned the dealer service department and they said it was probably the bulbs. I've never seen all bulbs go out at once. I inspected the two taillight bulbs and no broken filaments and very little resistance with the ohm...

  6. Trailer hitch bike rack - that doesn't cover license plate on a 2018?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2018 EX and was looking at a few trailer bike hitches (platform style). The problem is many of them look like they would partially or fully cover the license plate when folded up to save space. The 2018 seems to have the plate mounted down fairly low it seems. I happen to park next to...

  12. License Plate Frame

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    I recently bought one of those thick rubber license plate frame "bumpers" and when I went to go install it I found that the plastic license plate bracket was drilled directly into the front bumper (through the paint, etc.). I'm assuming this was done by the dealer as Honda wouldn't install the...

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    Hello. I recently got a 2004 CR-V from my uncle and brought it to my home in Ohio. It did not have a front license plate frame, so I purchased one from a local Honda dealership along with the 2 6mm clip nuts needed to attach it to the front bumper. It does not have instructions on how to...
