    Hey everyone, When I dropped the muffler to install a hitch on my 03 CR-V I found a bar that is rusted completely through. The rest of the vehicle is completely rust free.. anybody know of a replacement bar or what it's for? Assuming it's for chassis stiffness..

    Problems & Issues
    Muffler proximity to wheel?? Hi all-first time poster,here goes: son has 02? cr-v--said he had a hot wheel and burning smell, so I assumed a frozen caliper--but it is not a caliper. After that, I confirmed caliper operating nominally. I drove it, stopping frequently, and eventually got the...
  5. 2004 Muffler Delete

    Performance Modifications
    So I wanted to change up my exhaust on my 2004 Auto and initially I was going to do a 2.25" catback exhaust with magnaflow muffler in order to "improve" performance and gas mileage.

  10. 2000 CRV exhaust B-pipe flange failed -- need gasket?

    Maintenance and Service
    At the end of August 2012 the flange on the end of the B-pipe rusted off, and the muffler swung down, though fortunately doesn't touch the ground and didn't break the bottom of the bumper. It's sorta odd that the B-pipe flange fails before the pipe rusts through. At first I was going to go get...

    I've had my 2012 EX-L AWD about a month now, and I noticed that the paint had chipped or flaked off the painted muffler body just below the tailpipe. I found that Rustoleum High Heat (up to 1200° F) black spray paint fixed the issue. It blended perfectly with the existing paint finish on the...
