  1. Hearing a random squeal about 30mph & 80mph

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, this is my first post. Thanks in advanced for your help! We have a 2011 Honda CR-V LX AWD 5-speed with 94k miles. Once in a while, we hear a squeal lasting about a second as we are accelerating at about 30 mph and 80 mph. The car has been faithfully maintained. I just drained and filled the...
  2. Brake Squeal

    Problems & Issues
    I had my CRV in the Honda garage twice now for brake squeal, first time they shaved the pads, noise back as soon as the next day, second time today, they stripped and checked pads found surface to be glazed, they cleaned off pad surface and swapped pads. I did not hear the brake squeal on the...

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    2017 CRV Touring- when I turn right I hear a squeal in the steering wheel, feels like a spring re-coiling. Any ideas?
  4. 2005 crv, squeal at 3200 rpm but only under load...

    Problems & Issues
    Weird one here... When my crv is working, say going up a hill, the engine emits a loud shrill squeal. Almost like a belt, but no squeal just revving the engine, has to be under load. This is an auto awd. Any pointers? My Google fu is failing me today. Cg
  5. 2011 EX petrol model - intermittant squeal on acceleration

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi, I have a 2011 EX model (2.0 petrol) with 62K on the clock - very occasionally we have a 'squeal' from the front when accelerating away from standstill (almost like a slipping belt). Our Dealer has been unable to trace it or advise but we are concerned it may be more serious? Has anyone...

  7. 2003 CR-V 4WD EX 5MT clutch - squeal & burning?

    Problems & Issues
    I have around 125K miles on this vehicle; not sure how much on the clutch, as I bought it used last summer. Recently, I've noticed a high-pitched, continuous squealing sound when pressing on the clutch pedal. The sound occurs through the entire travel of the clutch pedal, and is accompanied by...

  9. High Pitched Squeal

    Problems & Issues
    05 Honda CRV High pitched squeal, begins when it hits 2800 rpm, especially when going up hill. Took to mechanic who said it was the exhaust. Other's have guessed wheel bearing, belt. Still very unsure what is the problem. Doesn't seem to come from a specific spot.
  10. Squeaking on steering

    Problems & Issues
    A bit of an odd one which I have only identified because there is a compulsory 50mph section on the M1 for 18 miles or so south of Sheffield. I put the 2008 2.2 diesel CRV into cruise control at precisely 50 mph (ok 52 but don't tell anyone!) and all is fine except for a slight irritating squeal...
  11. 2002 4WD CRV constant fluttering squeal coming from rear end

    Problems & Issues
    I just had my front brake pads done about a month ago and there has been a consistent squeak from those but starting today there has been a rhythmic fluttering squealing noise coming from the rear end of the car. It sounds somewhat like a chirpy bird noise. It is very consistent and is constant...
  12. Belt squeal - Clutch?

    Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I noticed a squealing belt while idling in traffic today, and when I press on my clutch (5 speed, manual) it goes away. In fact, when I simply take up the slack in the pedal, it goes away. Is there a belt of some sort I should be looking for under the hood??
  13. Squeal when turning

    Problems & Issues
    Honda CRV-EX 2005. For the past several months I have noticed a squealing noise when I turn into a parking space. I do not notice this squeal during when driving on the road. I have searched for this problem but others sometimes complain of a grinding noise. On my car there is no grinding...
  14. Brake Squeal only in Reverse

    Maintenance and Service
    2004 CRV w/80,000. I recently replaced the front brakes pads for the first time. Very straight forward. The first ones lasted so long that I bought the new pads from Honda. Rotor appeared fine so I left it alone. Pushed the piston back in with a large C clamp. As soon as I was done the...
  15. High pitched squeal coming from rear of vehicle?

    Problems & Issues
    Hello everybody, I have a 2002 CR-V, automatic, all wheel drive. I have been having this kind of high pitched squealing kind of metal on metal sound coming from the rear passenger side wheel. The sound most commonly happens when you put it in reverse and back up while turning the vehicle kind of...
  16. Left front squeal

    Maintenance and Service
    I got into the V tonight to drive to campus and I heard a very distinct metal on metal squeal coming from the left front. I know it is something in the wheel/brake area, but I can't get anything more than that. I drove this morning and this sound was not present. Anyone have any clues?

    Problems & Issues
  18. Squeal when starting

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2000 CRV that makes a short squealing sound when first started in the morning or after setting for a while. I thought it might be the belts so I replaced all three but it still make the sound. On another "note", sometimes the squeal is louder than other times. I can not seem to pin...
  19. 2000 CRV squeal in rear end

    Problems & Issues
    I just bought a 2000 CR-V EX 4WD, manual 5sp, and where I bought it I tried to engage the 4WD but it wouldn't engage for me on all the dry, city pavement. This thing is absolutely mint, 112,000miles. Looks like it's got 20,000 miles... I looked over everything and there are no flaws. I drove...
  20. 2007 & 2008 Owners Only, Does your AC Squeal?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    This poll only applies to only 2007 and 2008 CR-V owners (all trim lines). Many of us have experienced a high pitched squealing noise, resembling electronic feedback, that seems to emanate from behind the A/C control panel. The noise occurs only when the air conditioning compressor is engaged...
