Hello I have a 2013 CR-V with just shy of 80k miles. Its my wife's daily driver and when she got home last night she said the low oil light was coming on when the car was braking or turning. I first checked the dipstick which was about as low as it could be. So now I have 2 questions. How to get off the weird metal rivets on the plastic undercarrige (not the plastic rivests those are no problem).

Second any possible ideas where this leak is coming from? the plug and filter both look okay and most of the oil is on what i think is the crank case. Ive attached picures of the metal rivet and the oily underside.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for the replies guys. I had to work and took the car to a dealership, they figured out its the timing cover seal that is leaking.

The oil filter is installed correctly and it is a bosch filter.

As for the fasteners, still not too sure on those, i thought they took a special security bit, but they are not threaded just studs so....

Thanks again.
