  1. Maybe a dumb question rear differential on a 2014 CRV

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I have a 2WD 2014 CRV. I was going to change the rear differential fluid but looking under my car I don't see anything that looks like what I've seen in the YouTube video. Does the 2WD 2014 not have a rear differential?
  2. Noise from left vent area of the dash +brakes question

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Sorry if something like this has been discussed, I searched and couldn't find anything. Recently we've developed a weird clicking/buzzing sound from the left vent area when I hit certain bumps. Doesn't matter if the fan is running or not...almost sounds like a June bug flutters it's wings in...
  3. 2015 CRV Touring Navigation Question

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    My current 2015 Navigation system is way out of date. Has anyone upgraded to the 2019 Navigation (PINK) DVD? And if so, is it worth the $149.00? (2019 PINK USB MAP UPDATE VC.H0 150) Thanks!
  4. 2006 CRV Ex Valve cover gasket question

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hello all, ran into a issue while changing my plugs today. Cylinder 3 has oil all over it, and the coil is covered in oil. I know that mean I need a new valve cover gasket. Any how, I picked up the gasket, and now need help deciding on putting the right RTV sealant on. I picked up permatex ultra...
  5. 12V outlet power question

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    So I recently bought a 12v vacuum for use in the car. Something small I can store in the car to clean up occassional messes. The instructions say that for better power to the vacuum to start the engine (as opposed to just turning on the car to accessory mode). So my question is, what is it...
  6. Honda Dual Pump II Fluid Question

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hi, I just changed my wife's CRV rear differential fluid and this is the second time. The first fluid change, I noticed the the unused Dual Pump II fluid color was like honey. For the the second time, I noticed that the color of the unused fluid is like pink or light red. I still have the...
  7. U.S. 12v cargo accessory socket question...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I couldn't find any info on this. I'm in the US and as far as I know Canadian models come with the cargo 12v plug. Have any US users located the wiring? Is it even prewired? My last few cars, I've had it in the trunk, and I could use it in this one too. My last resort would be to piggyback the...
  8. Question about ambient air sensor

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Hope this is in the right place. So I’m a life long Honda lover and just recently purchased my first CRV. It’s a 2004, pretty plain but it does me well. Anyways obviously there isn’t much aftermarket support(compared to other Honda models) but I keep getting the urge to modify something...
  9. Stupid Question? 2nd gen AC system install

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Am planning on replacing most of my AC system in steps. First evacuating, then several days later replacing under the dash, then several days later another part etc. The question is, will it be drive-able in between steps? Will any of these steps cause the condenser to lock? The belt to freeze?

    Mobile Electronics
    Hello, I just installed a Sony XAV-AV1000 head unit in my 09 CRV but have no idea how to wire the light green parking brake wire, suggestions? Thank you!
  11. Question for Mechanics related to CR-V piston ring repair

    Problems & Issues
    Under an extended warranty Honda is replacing the piston rings in my 2011 CRV that has 80,000 miles on it. They will be performing HONDA SERVICE BULLETIN 12-089 as seen here: My question is: what other parts not related to or covered with the repair...
  12. Sirius screen question - feet and inches vs. Live?

    Mobile Electronics
    What does this number mean? On some Sirius stations the 1’ 35” is replaced with the word Live. If I choose a different preset and return to the original preset many times the numbers are replaced. Sometimes the numbers are different. Thanks.
  13. Propeller shaft removal question

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    Ok first off I have no NEED to remove mine. Normally no desire to either. However due to the fact we are moving to St Louis from northwestern Illinois over the next couple months, I will be towing a smallish trailer to accomplish this. Obviously as has been done for those that chose to...
  14. Potential CRV owner with question

    Greetings & Introductions
    Hello everyone! I was all set to buy a 2019 CR-V EX today but last night I came across the oil dilution issue and it's got me worried. When I zeroed in on the CR-V my car-knowledgeable friends told me to pay the slight premium for the EX rather than the getting the base LX. But, now I'm back...
  15. 2004 CRV AWD throttle body question

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I tried to save some $$ and I replaced the leaking power steering pump and alternator on my own. Got everything back together and started and ran fine for about 20 minutes. Now having horribly low idle to the point of stalling. Could I have damaged throttle body with anything I did?? I burped...
  16. Question about fan speed after fix

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Does anyone else feel as if the fan speed on high doesn’t blow as much as it used to before the fix? I remember on high it used to be a little loud. I no longer keep the fan speed below the mid mark once the car is warmed up. Anyone else notice the difference?

    Greetings & Introductions
    I can’t figure out what controls the temp of the rear heat vent. Is it driver setting, passenger setting or something else?
  19. Rear Differential fluid change question.

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    I know it's been covered a lot, but my question is more about my vehicle than the schedule. I have a 2016 CR-V with about 26,000 miles. We are retired and don't drive a lot, plus we have another vehicle as well. Anyway, I was talking with the local Honda dealership (service dept) and they...
  20. Question on how some of you keep tires looking black

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    2017 exl 28k. I’m very fussy when it comes to keeping my cars clean. At 28k miles, you would have a hard time distinguishing my car from a brand new one. I keep my paint spot less and it’s as smooth as ice. I swear by turtle wax ice as the car self dries after 40 mph. Under the hood no dirt and...
