    CRV rear differential graunch

    Hi...welcome to the Forum It is a common feature of the CR-V to wind up the transmission on full lock when driving on or off a driveway. However, it is accentuated by not changing the rear diff fluid periodically. If it hasn't been done for a while then you will need to flush it first and then replace the fluid. Diff Fluid https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-HONDA-CRV-DPS-FLUID-DIFF-OIL-1-LITRE/322527333403?epid=1415923714&hash=item4b18208c1b:g:sLQAAOSwd7FcM4E4:rk:3:pf:0 If you are flushing the diff, I think there is a special fluid for that, if not available (ask your dealer) then use 2 to 3 bottle of diff oil to flush out (drive around for a while and then replace fluid) Also, with the slippery weather almost upon us then it is worth driving it around on the snow, ice to invoke the 4WD and to get the rear diff working. Also handy for ABS as well. Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trevor
  3. well at least you know the sensors are working okay. I would be tempted to see if there is any way to alter the position of the sensor to match the desired height but it does seem strange that this has occurred, unless the ride height at the rear has changed e.g. broken road spring, etc

    CRV EX 2011 / Dashboard light query.

    Hi just to let you know it had to be reset by using the computer between dash dials by using buttons on the steering wheel.

    Whining sound

    Is the sound from the area of the engine, transmission or wheels? Also, is it engine speed or road speed related?

    2015 CR-V 1.6 diesel ex power cut / complete electrical failure

    Thanks for the response. We're basically leaving it with the auto electrician most days to test at his leisure. He said he won't charge until he finds a fults which is really good of him. Issue hasn't reappeared in the last week which makes it hard to diagnose.. I'll pass on your comments and het him to check. Thank you

    Hello members .

    Hi Andy.....welcome to the Forum Wow....can't remember the last time I saw a CR-X in the flesh. Feel free to post up a pic or two of the CR-X. We'll see how many other owners of this rare marque are out there and see if we can arrange a meeting somewhere Cheers, Trevor

    Replace radio

    Hi Julian.....welcome to the Forum I have a 2007 model CRV and it has the upgraded head unit with SatNav but saying that it is not much use with respect to technology compared to what is available in the aftermarket. I have considered changing it to a double-din unit, either X-Trons or even better a Japanese unit (Sony, Panasonic, etc)....far better technology and functionality with SatNav and other features, handsfree phone calls, Bluetooth other devices, WiFi, etc. Here's a link to a company that provides aftermarket solutions: http://www.iceboxauto.com/honda Let us know how you get on with this issue and if you do replace with an aftermarket unit then let us know which one you go for. Cheer . Trevor

    New member after all these years

    Hi Malcolm....welcome to the Forum The Accord will eventually, like most other cars, become a classic and if in great condition and the fact that you are looking after it so well in its golden years, then it will surely realise some value over time. Either way, its a wonderful thing to have to tinker with and fettle to keep in good working order. Feel free to post up a photo of it on here if you like. Cheers, Trevor

    2.0 i-VTEC MPG

    That would be a shame as the only other option would be LPG which would be cheaper to run the car on but would take some time to recoup the outlay

    Headlights not working

    Hi Craig....welcome to the Forum That is a very odd one, and probably best looked at by an auto-electrician if you have already checked everything through yourself. I cannot personally think of anything else to check if you have already gone through it all. Let us know what you find as would love to know what the problem was Cheers Trevor

    You don't need to remove the turbo as you run it through with it in situ. There are several different kits available so worth looking to see which one suits you best. Let us know how you get on with it

    Fitting parrot

    Hi Andy....welcome to the Forum Sorry, can't be of any help to you as it would be something quite specific that either someone who has fitted one in the past or someone who works in the car audio industry may be able to help you. Good to have you onboard Cheers . Trevor
  21. Not an ideal situation but at least for diagnostic purposes then it is what needs to be done. I would ensure that all lights (including boot light) are switched off and if it does go flat again then I'm sure they'll quickly find the fault

    Try some glass glue (not superglue as when it hardens it can crack glass) or otherwise you used to be able to get mirror self adhesive pads (not sure is you can still get them) Try Halfords to see what they have in stock

    Jazz owners handbook

    Just purchased a 2008 (57 plate) Jazz for my niece but there was no owners handbook in the car. Does anyone happen to have a spare one they don't need? Thanks.
