    Hey all, new to the CRV family but I am completely crazy about my CRV. Just purchased used roof rack, bike rack, and hard shell spare tire cover. I am searching for a used brush bar or grill guard - ideally in black but willing to consider anything if reasonably priced. If anyone has one or can...

    Has anyone done a relay/diode mod to make the low beam and fog lights come on with the High Beam? I found a tutorial for an older model, but I don't know if it'd work the exact way for mine. I'd also like to make it where the Fogs are able to come on with the parking lights. I've done this...

    . Like others, I modified my wife's 2014 CRV to use its factory FOG lights with both low and high beams settings as well. And, I also use the FOG lights as DRLs. Unlike some methods, I used a very simple method. re: A - For its front headlights, replaced its factory H4 Halogen bulbs...

    I want to change the settings on my CRV so my passenger can input address into navigation system, just like the system on my pilot will allow. My CRV is newer so idk if i could change the os to an older version as found on my 2011 Honda Pilot w/o losing features or functionality. Ideally i...

    Hi, I'm the new owner of a 5th gen CRV. Does anyone know if a full size spare can fit where the compact spare is, or if a mod can be done to make it fit? The stock all season tires are 235mm wide, and the compare spare is 155mm, so 80 mm (3.15 inches) of additional clearances is needed. By...

    My CD changer, in the console, didn't work & I replaced the head unit, so it wasn't hooked up, anymore. I decided to re-purpose it, into storage. So I gutted the changer. These are the parts I didn't use. This is what was left, to work with. Foamcore board, covered with felt, & hot glued...
  9. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello fellow humans! Just bought my CRV two weeks ago and enjoying every day with it. Made my 1st mod yesterday. Added a "turbo" badge from an Acura. Minor, but still fun. Look forward to reading all the posts from others on here!
  10. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    What up fam! Has anyone done anything to replace their OEM CD changer? It’s in a weird space and we don’t use cds anymore, lol. Not sure what I’d put there but maybe if other had done something I could get some ideas.

    I guess most of us experienced this discomfort (hard surface on where the knee rests) and many of you might have got used it already. Not me.. Attached a piece of yoga mat foam with a 3M double sided tape, without obstructing the knee air bag. Did it on both driver and passenger sides. As for...
  12. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I got this from Amazon (Car Rainbow LED Light Strip - Airgoo AGML0013 (2017 New Design) Waterproof Multicolor Music Activated Interior Car Lights For Any Cars With Cigarette https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071SCQBQ2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_nAj9eU1HTvfBe). I hooked it up directly to the passenger side...

    Had a recent experience with a irreparable, flat tire that found me riding on the compact spare in an area where distances between towns of any size are measured in the hundreds of miles. That was a problem because the donut spare that came with my 3rd gen 2011, is only supposed to be driven @...

    Hi all, first post for a new member? I have a 2015 CRV with auto boot opening, the one where it opens via key for or press of the boot button, I would like to upgrade to a gesture unit, I.e. Wave your foot under the boot to trigger opening. Does anybody know of a kit for this or am I too early...

  16. Performance Modifications
    Remove your stock air box and have a dremel with a plastic cutting disk and safety mask, glove, and glass. Then go to town on it like this **see picture below** It's a free mod if you have the tools. If you not have the tools then probably around 50 bucks to do. Still better than paying 200...

    I gotta be honest here. The 2005 gear shifter is pretty boring. I mean sure... it's... functional. But wouldn't you rather be shifting in style? I know I would. So I decided to make my own version of the classic "supercharger switch" made famous in the 1979 classic MAD MAX.

    Welllllll, what do you think? $15 on ebay. Not bad at all. I'm sure happy with it. EASY install.

    I need to tap into the 12v on the CRV. Any directions ? I am installing a Montag USB kit. Thanks!
  20. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I have a gen 2 2003 CR-V and I have been seeing aftermarket replacement LED reflectors for the newer CR-V's that are in the rear bumpers and none offered for my year model. So I decided to make a set for myself. I broke one of mine in the beginning so I bought a factory replacement set from...
