  3. Replacing front wheel bearings

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I have a 2012 AWD with 118K miles on it, and the front wheel bearings need to be replaced. The dealer's estimate was $1376. $1000 of that is labor. I have a decent set of tools and I do a lot of my own car work, and I'd like to save that $1000 labor by doing it myself, but I'm not sure if I...

    I replaced my front stabiliser bushings on a Gen 1 Crv and I noticed the part of the stabiliser bar where the bushings are attached/the bar pivots are quite rough/pitted/corrosion. I'm assuming leaving them like that may accelerate the wear of the new bushing, should I be cleaning up the...

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 CR-V
    Is this a difficult job to do? And what kind of prices should I look to be spending on these parts? Looking on the internet, I’ve seen everywhere from $27 an injector, up to $300. I want to make sure I’m getting some that works properly without having to pay crazy money for them. It’s a 2001...

    Our CRV is starting to have intermittent air. We are a year outside the extended warranty. When the air fails to come on I can clearly see the clutch not engaging. If I tap it, it engages. Was going to either replace compressor or get new ac clutch and coil. It appears to replace the ac...
