    2017 - Present Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen
    The glove box door on my '19 has a big, nasty scuff and I would like to replace it. Is this a difficult job, requiring a lot of dash dis-assembly, or can a competent DIYer do it themself ? I've scoured the 'Net looking for instructions but have had no luck finding anything. Thanks.

  15. 2000 CR-V 2.0 Auto instrument panel removal

    I bought today a 2000 CR-V and now the D light on the instrument panel is not lighting up. It did for half a day. All other lights, P, R, N, 2, 1 work.
