  1. 2003 Knocking/rattle from back, underneath of car

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2003 CRV AWD. I've had what seems to be a knocking or rattle that comes from somewhere in the rear of the car when under load. As soon as the road levels out, the noise goes away. This doesn't happen all the time, but enough to be annoying. I changed the rear differential damper, and...

    Hi. When pulling into the garage and after shutting off the engine, I hear a rapid ticking sound from underneath the CRV. It almost sounds like its coming from the middle of the vehicle, and this sound persists after at least 45 minutes (just checked and its still doing it). What could this...
  9. What's that thing hanging down underneath my '07 CRV??

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    My assumption is that thingy hanging down is supposed to be there to protect the catalytic converter or muffler, right in back of it, from road debris?

  15. Is there any special trick to removing the retainer clips underneath the bumper?

    Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    I'm wondering if the retainer clips that hold the rear bumper cover require any special technique to remove them. Is it a clip inside a clip? Or, do I just pry them out like "Christmas tree retainers" on american cars? Better to ask then to bust them all up. The car is an '09 LX.
