Default Fixes: TSB 07-021:Moan or Groan From Rear Differential in Cold Weather

Honda released this earlier this month on April 7, 2007

Moan or Groan From Rear Differential in Cold Weather
Issue description:
Moaning or groaning comes from rear differential when making a sharp or tight turn at low speeds. Happens more often when weather is cold.
Why does this happen?
The cooler temperature changes causes the rear differential clutch material to deviate from its normal working function.

What to do?
If this happens to you consistently, bring it to the dealer for evaluation and fixing of the rear clutch pack.

Hmmm which vehicles is this directed at, and what about the warranty considerations?

Can you provide a link to the document?

:cool:

I thought the 07 was mechanically very similar to the 06....so why would this only apply to the new models ??

just curious.

Where have you been? The word on the street is that an "improper fluid" was put into these 07's rear differentials at the factory. It also holds more fluid than past prior years.

The rear differential in the 2007 was redesigned, and is not the same as the earlier CR-Vs.

Geez, my VIN ends with 35230. Bought last winter but did not notice any noise from the rear end. What should I do? Maybe I'll wait until next winter to find out.

Where have I been ?? Out driving my '06 I guess. I am not as "up" on the new model as I was last year. Before I purchased mine, I was quite knowledgable, but that was a while ago, and the model year changed....sorry.

For pennance I'll go read my manual 3 times and rotate my tires.
