    I just purchased a CRV for my wife . After getting car home I was shocked to find water in spare tire area. The dealer washed car right before I purchased so I assume it came from the washing as it has not rained recently. I have seen many posts about about this problem. Can anyone tell me if...

  9. 5th gen full size spare mod?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Hi, I'm the new owner of a 5th gen CRV. Does anyone know if a full size spare can fit where the compact spare is, or if a mod can be done to make it fit? The stock all season tires are 235mm wide, and the compare spare is 155mm, so 80 mm (3.15 inches) of additional clearances is needed. By...

  13. Spare Tire Placement

    Dear Honda:
    Honda, Please consider placing the spare tire with the valve stem facing up. This would make it easier for those of us who check its air pressure on a regular basis. Please note Nissian does this.
  14. Admit it, you have no idea what your spare pressure is... a solution

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Admit it... few of us ever think to check the pressure in our spare tires. This is doubly bad because with our chintzy "doughnut" spares running at 60 PSI, they lose pressure faster than the regular wheels. And, even if you DO have the motivation to check the spare pressure on a regular basis...
  15. Spare Tire and Rear Window Glass

    Gen 1: 1996-2001 (UK 1995-2001) CR-V
    A trio of questions: 1--Won't the spare tire that is attached to the rear door, be subject to "dry rot"? ***Any way to stop this? 2--When I look out of my rear window, I see what looks like a "checkerboard" on the glass-- ***What is this? *** How do I get rid of it? 3--What is the best...

    Problems & Issues
    I just bought an 06 EX with 5-speed and love it. It came with a spare key, which was from a different car. I noticed that the cut profiles along the blade of the spare key are similar to the ones on the original key, but not identical. I was able to do the programming routine without problem...
  17. Spare tire mod - carry a full size spare!

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Had a recent experience with a irreparable, flat tire that found me riding on the compact spare in an area where distances between towns of any size are measured in the hundreds of miles. That was a problem because the donut spare that came with my 3rd gen 2011, is only supposed to be driven @...
  18. Dealership Lost My Key

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    My CRV is in the dealership service shop, and they've lost my keys! I know because they called me and asked if I took them. When, I called back to follow up, they had told me that they cut me a new key. Fine, but I have my other key here and the spare, emergency key. If they cut me a new key...

  20. Reasonably priced spare smart key/ programming question

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'm not a fan of the push button start/smart key trend, and would have loved an LX-style key for my EX-L, but that wasn't an option. I need a third key (to give garage), but do not need any functions besides opening/locking doors and starting the car (not remotely). Is it possible to buy one of...
