  1. Greetings & Introductions
    Hello, cleaned up my 2008 CRV today. It has 275k miles. It is so nice, I jamed all the way home on xm radio 27. I think I'm going to start customizing for off road

    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. 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"...

    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?

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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"...

    Hello, looking at a CR-v to deliver mail. It would work for me if I can take the lower portion off, like the glove box area. Just want to know if this is possible Im looking a a 2003 and 2004

    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.

    Thought it was be a simple process to remove the rear trailing arm and replace the bushings. Got all the bolts removed but one. Head snapped right off. Guess Ill be pulling the whole rear assembly and cutting and drilling out the remainder. i had to bend the small plate that was blocking...

    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...

    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...

    Can I swap out the right & left Door lower garnish assembly on an EX Model and replace it with the part from A Touring Model? I have an EX Model with the black Hockey stick shape in the middle of the lower garnish assembly and I want to put a Touring garnish assembly on the EX ..because the...
