1999 Honda CR-V AWD Manual Transmission


I was driving on the interstate about a month ago and my CR-V kept slipping out of 5th gear and making a grinding noise while held in it. I got off the interstate and took a hwy in 4th gear to get home (no problem in any other gear). I drove the car to my fluids shop and had them flush the transmission fluid. They said it was critically low.

Now I have a whine in 5th gear. All of the other gears seem to be fine.

Is it possible in this CR-V model year to change/fix the 5th gear without dropping the transmission or getting a complete rebuild? I've read on these forums that it might be but no specific info about it.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you,
