    Maintenance and Service
    Hi everyone, I drive a 2004 Honda CRV and I've just been told that my two rear shock absorbers (Part # 52611-S9A-N03) need to be replaced.

    Maintenance and Service
    Left rear brakelight on my 2008 CR-V Ex-L doesn't work unless the running lights or headlights are on. Right brake light works just fine all the time (knock on wood), but the left brake light will only illuminate if the running or headlights are on. Any suggestions? Thanks!
