    Default Rubbing noise

    2002 with 17,500miles
    I have a rubbing noise when I make a sharp turn, particularly going uphill or downhill. Sometimes there is also a squeaking noise with it. It sounds like it's coming from the wheels...any suggestions.

    The manual's quite wrong about the interval for changing the Dual Pump Fluid, and lots of owners have had viscosity failure below 30,000 miles. Rear differential noises can sound like they are coming from the front or the rear. For a few bucks and 45 minutes of your time, you can DIY. You may well get the satisfaction of solving your noise. :-)

    I have the same issue with my '02 V. When I turn hard to the right it sounds like it is coming from the rear left wheel well.

    I am still looking for the problem...

    If it's not making a similar (or worse) noise for left turns, it may not be the Dual Pump Fluid. But if you're over 30,000 miles, is should be changed just because.

    Out of curiosity, for DIY-selfers, on which side of the rear differential (driver or passenger) are the differential drain and refill plugs?

    My '05 shop manual didn't really mention this aspect; I haven't gone underneath our CRV yet, but a cursory glance makes me think that it's on the driver's side. (Gosh, things look 'busy' and 'tight' down there! ) And it looks like a hex socket is needed to get these plugs out -- is this correct? If so, what size?

    Many thanks in advance!

    On the '97 you can actually look across the top of the rear left wheel and see the plugs, but they started installing all kinds of stuff in the later models. The 'ARTICLES' section in the CR-V drop-down menus (above) will get you to a DIY article. I don't remember the socket size, but I'll write it down next time :-) Be warned - -- they are tight, so undo the upper one first. :-)

    Curly is right. For the gen 1 they are on the driver's side. I had to use a "breaker bar" on the end of my ratchet to get enough leverage to loosen the fill and drain bolts.

    Sorry don't remember what socket size I used.

    Hint:
    I used a $2 bottle adaptor from Walmart that screws on to the top of the Dual Pump Fluid bottle. This makes it very easy to refill the rear diff. Do a search on this site, I seem to remember someone posting a picture of it.

    Many thanks for the helpful information and tips! :wink: Actually, my friend's early model Pilot allows the square drive of (he doesn't remember) either a 3/8'' or 1/2'' wrench to fit, but I don't recall that this was what I saw last night ...

    I wonder if the '05 will be more tolerant to the rear diff's sensitivity to the fluid 'condition', but somehow suspect not after reading the comments and threads here and on www.quebeccrv.com.

    Oh well ...

    Many thanks again!

    Hi,

    Just for posterity, and for those who might read this in the future, the re-fill and drainage bolts for our '05 CRV rear differential are on the (rear) driver's side, and for removal, appear to allow for the direct fit of a 1/2" square drive ratchet. (Admittedly, although I haven't really verified the size, I figure that it must either be 3/8" or 1/2".)

    And boy, it's quite "busy" and tight around there ... <Sigh>

    Regards,

    Michael :wink:

    I just changed mine today. On the 02 the drain plugs are on the driver side and it takes a 3/8 drive breaker bar. Once I broke the plug free I could turn it with my fingers. As suggested on this board I bought a 4 foot length of 1/2 inch clear tubbing that fit on a funnel I have. I routed the tube over the drivers side rear wheel and under the body to the fill plug hole. It took me more time to jack up and place the stands on the rear end to get at the plugs than it did to drain and re fill the fluid.

    Make sure you remove the top (fill) plug first. If you cannot remove the fill plug but remove the drain plug, you will be unable to re-fill the fluid.

    Thank you to all posters for the assistance I have recieved on this board.
