    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
  2. 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
  3. maybe worth disconnecting the link from the axle bracket and manually moving the lever on the sensors to see if it is free and adjusts the headlamps

    Whining sound

    Is the sound from the area of the engine, transmission or wheels? Also, is it engine speed or road speed related?
  5. I don't suppose you could get someone to check the lights to see if they move while you move the adjuster under the rear and see if it makes any difference...at least that way you would know if the system is working okay from the sensors

    Hello All - Welding advice please

    Feel free to upload some pictures....spent many years welding all sorts of vehicles so more than happy to be of assistance
  7. Hi Jay....welcome to the Club There should be an adjuster on the dash just above your right knee, if it is not HID If it is HID then it would more than likely be a link rod on the rear suspension that has come adrift

    CRV EX 2011 / Dashboard light query.

    It may need resetting but generally they usually reset once the correct pressure is in the tyres. Worth double checking the pressures using another gauge

    Hi to all

    Hi Tony....welcome to the Forum I too believe that my CR-V is the best car I have ever owned, although I would say that I don't have much luck communicating with my onboard system....it doesn't understand a word I say 😞 Good to have you onboard Cheers . Trevor

    Good morning & hello

    The Civic is a great car and lasts forever with the right maintenance. Feel free to start a new thread and I would be very interested to read about the various mods you carry out. Cheers, Trevor

    Good morning & hello

    Hi James / Jim I personally drive a CR-V (3rd generation) and have to say it's probably the best car I have ever owned. What year is your Civic and what spec? Good to have you onboard Cheers . Trevor

    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
  13. Hi James...welcome to the Forum My very first thoughts are that the car probably has Keyless Entry and therefore the keys could be getting corrupted signals which could be switching the car off and then allowing it to power up with no faults registered. I would be tempted to use the other/spare key and see if the fault occurs with it. If it doesn't then problem solved, it if does then I would address it with Honda as a 'safety issue' as you should not have this occurring when driving, which it seems has not occurred as yet but may progress further. Please keep us informed of the progress with this one. 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
