  1. Crosstour AWD V6 Swap?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hello everyone. There is a huge possibility that I may be buying a 13' CRV with a blown motor for DIRT cheap. When I say DIRT cheap i actually mean it. I have the means to buy a stock motor and drop it in fairly easily. But before I do that, I thought about the swap mentioned in the title? Has...

    Hello y'all! I've recently changed out the battery for my 2015 CR-V SE (For you guys wondering what the hell SE is, I'm pretty sure it's a just special edition for Canada, in between LX and EX) for the 2nd time, and the infotainment screen is asking for a pin. Now I've already searched the...

    Mobile Electronics
    Hello to the world of CR-V owners. I recently purchased a CR-V LX AWD, but not fond of the stereo. I have found that it just does not appeal to my eyes.

  5. Steering Wheel Swap?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I've come to realize that every 2nd gen steering wheel I notice is all chewed up with age, including mine.. I'm curious as to which steering wheel + airbag combo would be a direct swap on a 2004 CR-V EX, if there are any. Has anyone ever swapped a wheel and airbag from a different Honda/Acura...

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi All, I'm the new boy here, so bear with me I've just acquired a 2007 CRV, and the Satnav looks dated and clunky, compared to today's touch screen models. Can anyone recommend a more modern replacement that doesn't require a degree in electronics to set up?

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2006 2WD CRV with 140k miles. I'm pretty sure my car is going to require a new transmission. It's been hard shifting and jerking since I got it about a month ago.
