  1. Underbody (plastic) covers for Gen 3 CRV?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 CR-V
    Dear all, I noticed that for Gen 4 CRV (2012 - ), it has better underbody (plastic) covers that offers better protection. For example, in order to flush transmission fluid, if you have a Gen 3, you can just locate the bolt right away, while with Gen 4 CRV you will have to remove a underbody...

  5. 2017 underbody / undercarriage material

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hello. Just joined and had a question on the 2017 underbody as I've not had the opportunity to actually look closely at one, much less the underside of one. I think I saw what seemed to be a rug-like material on the underbody, perhaps in the middle area. :confused: I read that Honda tried to...

  9. 2011 road noise. Later models have rear underbody panels

    Problems & Issues
    I am assuming these panels are for noise suppression. I saw the panels on later model crvs watching a UTube video about a trailer hitch installation. The local Honda parts Dept was not aware of availability for a 2011. Anyone know if ones from later models will fit and a source.
