  1. 2008 CRV Door actuator mounting screw

    Problems & Issues
    So I've removed my actuators in the past with no problem. Had to replace one this weekend but one of three mounting screws is going to need drilling out. I can't seem to find the size screw listed anywere so I can get some before I proceed . I think it's a phillips M6- 14 x 1.0 is that correct?
  2. After market cross bar - mounting hardware??

    Hi all, I bought a set of crossbars for my 2007 CRV from eBay seller free-motor802. Despite the ad showing the fasteners none were provided.

  6. Please help with installing head unit in 03 CRV!!

    Mobile Electronics
    I'm not only new to the group, but I've also never installed my own head unit before. Crutchfield sent along an American International mounting bracket (HON-K828) and it seems that it fits most CRV's so I was hoping someone here may have some experience with the mounting kit. My problem is...

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Does anyone know the correct tire mounting method to use on a 2009 CR-V with aluminum wheels? I purchased four new Yokohama Avid Envigor tires in January 2011. Since then, the dealer has had to put at least 10 new tires on the car because each time they are rotated, there is a vibration in the...

  10. 2003 vs 2005 seat mounting bolts difference

    I am looking at buying a Ram laptop mount for my 2003 CR-V. Ram has a 2005-2011 passenger side seat bolt mount, but no listing for a 2003. Is the front passenger side seat mounting the same in the 2005 as the 2003 or did Honda change something? Paul
  11. 2007 Amp Mounting in spare tire.

    Mobile Electronics
    Well, this is my first post, and this is also my project. Before we start, let me clarify a few things. #1. I spoke with Rockford Fosgate already and mounting the amp upside down is alright. Not the most recommended way, but Tech support told me that it won't hurt and they have done it in...

  13. DIY: Make your own universal Thule or Yakima mounting hardware

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    I recently switched cars and as a result, realized that the aero bars on the CR-V roof rack don't work with many of the older Thule and Yakima mounting hardware that was designed for square cross bars. A quick search revealed that these parts aren't widely available, particularly from Thule as...
  14. Interior Spare Tire Mounting

    Dear Honda: (Feedback Forum)
    Why not mount the spare tire so that the valve stem is is pointed up? As it is now if one wants to check the air pressure in the spare, the tire has to be removed. Please note that my 1998 Nissian Altima and 1999 Nissian Sentra had the spare tires mounted this way.

    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    I have a 2005 CR-V without a roof rack. I want to secure a Sears X-Cargo (some call it a Big Mac box) to the roof. I do have a moonroof. I thought about removing the rack mount covers and screwing four eyebolts into one of the threaded mount holes on each corner. Then I can tie down the box...
