2001 Honda CRV shock replacement

Getting ready for a front swap out and have not done this before. Buddies tell me it's a piece of cake. Sure sign of impending doom. Is it really that simple?

Well, there are no shocks on a Honda. There are struts. The front ones are more difficult than the rear. You will need a spring compressor kit (about $100). Once strut assembly is removed, compress spring, remove shock. Reinstall in reverse order.

Sometimes you will need to remove the brake lines from the calipers. Bleedthe brakes after reinstalling.

2001 Honda CRV cruise control doesn't after getting timing belt replaced

Very likely, the repair shop botched the repair, and failed to reconnect some kind of connection which is critical to the cruse control. Very typical in repair shops these days! I would take it back and complain!

Clock does not work. crv 1998

If it is not the fuse then it is most likely an internal issue with the clock itself. These clocks (and many other models) commonly burn out internally. I offer a very cost effective repair solution. Check it out!
