    Does anyone know the volume of oil between upper & lower dipstick indicators in the 1.5L Turbo engine in the 2017-19 CR-V? My oil level is currently at the top of the orange plastic and I want to know how much oil to remove with my dipstick oil extractor. Thanks in advance.

    As the title says, I'm looking for a rear deck cover with minimal lip. If I do lower the rear seats I don't want to have to bother moving the cover under the deck or deal with the lip sticking up.

    I am currently looking into cargo trays and cannot decide between the lower tray or the upper tray. Mostly, I fail to see the point in having the cargo shelf in the lower position so I'm hoping for examples of when people use one position over the other.

    Anyone know if a good upper position cargo liner that has full protection for the side pockets as well? I tried the Maxtray liner from Amazon, but the pockets on the liner are about 1.5" deep while on the CR-V they are 4-5" deep. Also, if anyone knows of an organizer that can sit above the...

    Hi guys. I've got bad upper ball joints that need replaced. I see online I can order just the ball joints, or the entire upper control arm. When I go onto YouTube to see how to replace the ball joints, everyone is replacing the entire control arm. one gentlemen even commented that the ball...

    My upper rear brake light (center high mount stop lamp) went out but my lower brake lights are fine. When I took the car in for an oil change and alignment, I had them replace the lower brake bulbs because I figured they'd go out soon (about $15) but they said the upper rear brake light is an...

    Greetings! I'm about 2000 miles in to CR-V ownership and have been mostly happy. Owned (still own 1) German car for the past 18 years, so I'm getting used to a different quality of build/car. One thing I notices is that after resting my elbow on the door panel (like I would be with my hand on...

    What bulb in upper tail light of 2015 CRV Touring? Answer:168 I am upgrading the lights on my 2015 CR-V Touring to LEDs and want to replace the "upper tail light bulbs" to LED.

    Has anyone modded the tail light of their CR-Vs (2012+) to add a marker bulb type 168 at the very top section, as the rest of the sections have? Honda left this section empty, and I think it would look better all lit up. I did this mod on my 2002 2nd Gen CR-V and loved it. The section is...

    I just had my CR-V detailed, and they did an amazing job. They got rid of all of the scratches on the paint, and it almost looks new. The rear bumper is another story. The upper and lower bumper covers are turning milky white, and the upper part on the rear door has that horrific swirling...

    After posting the above post in Exteriors I've been asked to describe the procedure for this DIY job. After removing the tail light assembly as described in the owners manual, see picture, I took a step bit and drilled a 3/4 inch hole at the base of the top section of the tail light. This is the...
