this happened during the snowing

Hi there,

I've got an Anker towbar to fit to a 2004 CR-V Sport. It all looks fairly easy apart from taking out the plastic trim along both sides of the boot. I need to drill 8 holes to fit the 2 brackets, but I can only see the dimples from underneath the vehicle. I dont want to just apply preasure for fear of snapping the plastic. Can anyone tell me how I might best approach this?

Many thanks,


I was told that the waterpump needs to be replaced plus all belts when timingbelt is replaced, when calling for price quote. I have had other cars with timing belts replaced and didn't replace waterpump and had no problem. What is is the normal

who does the repairs

I cannot use my key in any of the locks as it feels like there is something in the lock. Now I'm having the same problem with the ignition. Dealer tells me that ignition and locks have worn out - though I hardly ever used the passenger and tail gate key locks. Does this make any sense?

the adjuster spin wheel are backed off the whole way, the rotars are on but still very tight. Is there any other adjustments that can be made?

how do you replace the cabin air filter on a 2001 honda crv?

Looking for instructions for the replacement of a drivers side, rear quarter window in a 2000 Honda CRV. Trying to figure out if I can do this myself. Thank you in advance.

Check engine light stays on - Checked code and it shows emmission.

Are there things that I check before replacing the Caftalytic Coverter? The CR-V has 200.000 mile.

loud clunking in front when making slow turns to right or left. Ongoing since new in 2005 I have been told recently it is the CV joint and or shaft. What would be approximate cost to repair by dealer or mechanic.

my daughter brought her 2002 CRV to dealer's service dept. for oil change and waited for the car. They told her when the car was ready that they had checked her suspension system and that it needed to be replaced almost immediately. She asked if they had removed all four wheels in order to do this. They said they did not have to-just had to put car on lift and do a visual.

A few weeks ago, the front part of my drive shaft broke off the transmission, but I was able to take it to my brother's garage. I then learned the gear shifting cable was snapped, oxygen sensor's wires were snapped, and the exhaust pipes were damaged. I would like to know how much it would cost to have it fixed.
The CR-V has 175,890 miles on it and it still runs as great as the day I bought it. Since then I have gone through 2 Chevy's and a Dodge. I know the model of vehicle my next choice will be.

I get my oil changed at 50% at the dealer.I've never received a maintenance minder and I now think it must be because everytime I have the dealer change the oil--the oil is reset to 100%. I'm now at 35K.

for the 2nd time in 3 years I have no heat. Honda wants to replace radiator & heater core again because they say it is all clogged with sludge. What is making this happen?

Front end noice (skipping or grinding feeling) when turning sharply at very slow speeds. Does not always do it. Both directions. CV boots are fine. New tires, new alignment. 60,000K. Lexus tried to say it was my idle. No way!

I have been told I need my lower front ball joint replaced and the knuckle and wheel bearing. However the car does not make the noise that is decribed on this website for wheel bearing problems. Is it required to replace the wheel bearing when replacing the ball joint?

I have a 1999 Honda CR-V that I thoroughly enjoy. I recently had my entire passenger side headlight housing stolen out of the car (bizarre thing). There’s some twisted metal and the old bolts were there when I replaced the unit with a new one I bought online, and that was pretty easy. What I hadn’t noticed was that the electrical wiring leading up to the passenger side turn signal was now just wires and had been stripped of the unit where the signal bulb would be inserted. I am looking for direction on how to solve this problem myself; I am good at repairing my own vehicles but lack proper terminology and some basic understanding. Can I simply buy the electrical unit for the bulb and rewire it to the existing wires (which I cannot find a source for online), or do I need to turn to something more drastic? Either way I am looking to fix this problem myself and bypass expensive trips to the shop. Thanks!

I am being told I need to replace the bearing as well as the ball joint. I do not hear the noise describe on this website for failing bearing. So I am wondering if I need to replace that also?

Front end crash, transmission stuck in Park/fluid low. What's involved in fixing it?
