  2. Removing Adhesive Backed Item From Car Bady

    Problems & Issues
    Just wanted to check before I ruin the body. I’ve got a plastic emblem stuck to the back door (tailgate) that I want to remove. I’ve read to use alcohol or Goo Gone to remove the adhesive that was part of the sticker. I’d like to make sure those won’t hurt the finish, or is there another product...

  6. removing the orange dipstick tip

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I would like to remove the orange plastic tip from the dipstick in order to make it easier to read. It is nearly impossible to see the level when the oil is fresh since it almost seems to "climb" up the tip even with the dipstick held down or horizontal. Of course the new oil is transparent...

  9. 2000 CRV AWD-will not move after removing rear Driveshaft

    Problems & Issues
    My trusty 2000 CRV now has 225k miles on it and suddenly started making a loud screeching/grinding sound in the rear. It is not your typical grinding noise that occurs during left or right turns that is solved by replacing the Dual Pump fluid every 30k miles (I replaced it anyway with no...

  12. Removing Moonroof visor on 2017 CR-V

    Recently purchased a used 2017 CR-V EXL with the Honda moon-roof visor already installed. I'm interested in removing the visor as it reduces the size of the moon-roof, makes a horrible flapping noise when crossing long bridges on windy days and makes the roof hard to clean. I found the...

    I have a 2009 crv. I’m curious about if I am able to remove the bottom cushion of the back seat to possibly make the seat lie flat. I’m not interested in removing the whole seat, simply removing the cushion if at all possible. Anyone done it?

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    So I started the process to remove the back seats of my 1999 CRV model. So far I have the bottom part of the seat off but what to get the rest off. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that has taken the seats off completely and if they could give me some insight on how to do that (What...

  18. DIY: anyone change oil on their 2018 CR-V yet? [removing cover under front of car]

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    i watched a couple youtube videos on the 2017, but it seems that even though the 2018 is supposed to be very similar to the 2017, the "undercover" on our 2018 EX-L is not a metal plate held on by screws. i admittedly haven't looked at it carefully, but it wasn't clear to me what needs to be...
