  4. CR-V DT+EL 4WD 2017 rebuild to adaptive cruise control

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just bought this car in Thailand. They don-t have ACC and that is very sad. I have had it before on a Golf and I love it. In the future I should like to rebuild it with an ACC.

  5. Torque Converter shudder at 45 mph; don't rebuild tranny

    Maintenance and Service
    Hello. At 115,000 miles my car would shudder when driven at a constant 45 mph. Honda said it was the torque converter and it was aggravating but would not fail quickly. It was OK at all other speeds. But I decided to go ahead and replace it. However, all the trans shops wanted to rebuild...
  6. Stupid clunking continues after rebuild of front suspension

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    I knew I needed new struts when this clunking started, and my mechanic friend suggested we just rebuild the front suspension, given the age of the car and the fact that we were removing a lot of it to do the struts anyway. Changed out struts, control arms, ball joints, end links. Car still...

  15. Rebuild Calipers or Buy Used?

    Diesel CR-V
    Been doing a pad change and a simple job has turned out a bit of a nightmare - rear calipers on both sides are completely refusing to retract. Even bought a piston rewind kit but no joy. Peeled back the gators a little and it's all pretty corroded. I'll probably keep the car another year or...

    Eastern & Central Canada Owners
    Just an information note. I was able to have my driveshaft rebuilt through our local Autoparts Extra supply store at a shop in Gatineau, PQ for $400.00. Shaft came back and vibration was gone. New u-joints, hanger bearing and slip joint was nice and free. Beats buying a new one!
