  3. 2000 honda cr-v MT AWD Questions (MT or AT Transfer Case?)

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Forgive me if this has been asked before but I couldn't find it. I have a 2000 CR-v Manual AWD and I was curious if the AT transfer case will bolt up to the MT transmission. I know there is a gearing difference, but I am looking into changing some things around to make it 1:1 front to back and...
  4. Proud RD1 CR-v Owner! (Not staying stock) My Fun-v!

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Glad to be joining the community! Figured I would start this now rather than later to keep track of the progress on my CR-v.

  7. RD1 CR-v Rear Auto-Locker Differential options. Possible solid rear axle swap?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    I tried looking around for information on this so ill just wrap this up in one article. I have a 2000 Honda CR-v AWD 5-speed and wanted to improve its off-road capabilities without going full on insane. First logical step would be getting an autolocker for the rear diff right? Here is what I...

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    Hello everyone, Does anyone have any recommendations for an after market seat with the appropriate hardware? (brackets and such) Do seats/aftermarket seats for the EJ6 Honda Civic also work for Gen1 CRVs? I’m looking to replace my front seats since the ones in now are the original and worn...
