  2. What cup or socket size is needed to drive lower bushing into rear damper?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I am getting ready to rebuild a rear strut on my 2000 CRV SE. Does anyone know what size cup or socket I will need to drive the bushing into the shock? It has to be a cup or socket because of the way the bushing is made - I had to order the bushing from the California parts depot and I want to...
  3. lower mileage or bells and whistles?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    My 2003 Crv was totaled recently. The dealer has 2 2016 models. One is a SE with just a little over 7,000 miles. The other is an EX with almost 34,000 miles. I am still mourning the loss of my dark red 2003, and will miss the higher profile. I had planned to "drive it until it was dead"...
  4. Theory – Lower Oil Level, Lower Dilution

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Theory: The lower the oil level in your engine, the quicker the warm up and, by extension, less gas in your oil. The reverse can be true for heat though — the quicker the cool down when stopped, coasting. Does anyone keep their oil level lower than the max? Have you realized any benefits?
  5. Amount of Oil Between Upper & Lower Dipstick Indicators

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Does anyone know the volume of oil between upper & lower dipstick indicators in the 1.5L Turbo engine in the 2017-19 CR-V? My oil level is currently at the top of the orange plastic and I want to know how much oil to remove with my dipstick oil extractor. Thanks in advance.

  7. CRV 2012 Broken rear windshield, glass inside lower hatch door.

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I had my rear windshield repaired after I accidentally broke it. My insurance sent a company to come to my place and replace it, but there are some pieces trapped that are rattling inside the lower hatch door. The technician that did the repair said that they don't have hoses that thin to reach...
  8. Lower engine pan fasteners

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    First oil change was the dealer. The second one I did myself. I found one of the fasteners for the lower engine cover to be missing. Rattled out? Dealership forgot it? The other fasteners were already corroded. I’m getting the feeling replacing these will be the norm in the coming years if I...

  10. 2014 CRV LX Front Lower Bumper Replacement

    Problems & Issues
    Hi Folks, My wife hit the curb with our 2014 CRV LX causing the lower bumper to slam into the end of the condenser. As a result the AC is not blowing cold air. Engine seems to be running OK. I've been observing the temperature gauge, its not over heating. The front body colored bumper is fine...
  11. Anyone lower a third gen V?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have been considering lowering my 2008 V since it is 2WD and pretty much gutless off road. I figure if it will not do any work for me, might as well make it look sharp. Wondering if anyone here has done this mod. I guess I would be doing this via coil springs. I am thinking it is 1.5"...

    I would like to protect the engine from dirt. Is it possible to fit one? Is it available on the market?
  14. Usefulness of the Cargo Shelf in Upper vs Lower position?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I am currently looking into cargo trays and cannot decide between the lower tray or the upper tray. Mostly, I fail to see the point in having the cargo shelf in the lower position so I'm hoping for examples of when people use one position over the other.

    Maintenance and Service
    Looking to fix daughter's 2005 EX, the Passenger front LBJ worked it self out a few millimeters, rubbed against the CV axle, tearing the clamp off, which of course allowed grease out/water and crud in to the now bootless CV joint. I took the knuckle off, removing the LBJ, but the Moog LBJ I am...

    Apologies if this has been mentioned on another thread but I couldn't find anything. I have started to use the AC and have found that when the air is blowing on my chest, the air is barely blowing on my feet. I have never had this problem with another vehicle. It is hot when I get in my car...

  20. 2010 CRV Lower Engine Cover Retaining Clips

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hey gang, I just did some servicing on my '10 EX-L and had to remove the lower engine cover to do so. As I'm sure they almost always do, the plastic retaining clips got all but destroyed in the process. My parts guy at my local dealer said they are roughly $2 each. When you add up the roughly...
