  1. Wheel Vibration

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I have a 2003 CRV. If I drive very slowly, say 3-5 mph, I can feel a rubbing, and the car will actually sway left and right a little in sync with the tire or axle rotation, not engine rpm. At 30-60 mph, the vibration gets bad. I don't want to drive above 60 because the shaking is very bad...

  16. Rubbing Seat Belt

    Problems & Issues
    Has anyone had a problem with a 2011 lower anchor on the seat belt being high enough to rub a hole in their pants by the hip? I know it's crazy sounding but really frustrating when you commute 3 hours a day. The plastic piece of the anchor is the culprit. I could just wrap it with cloth or...

    I get a rubbing/vibrational noise from the vicinity of the driveshaft-transfer case from under one condition: a sharp right turn with a sharp bump in the middle of the turn, e.g. a speed bump or dropping off a curb. It lasts for about one or two seconds. Normal?
  20. Rubbing sound from rear wheels

    Performance Modifications
    I have a 2005 2.2 turbo diesel and when cornering, (louder on sharp turns) there is a rubbing sound coming from the rear wheels. Any ideas what this could be? The noise is louder when there is passengers or weight in the back. Have checked tyre pressures and they are ok. Any ideas appreciated.
