  • How to Repair Damaged Drivers-Side Mirror on 2014 Honda CRV EXL
  • The most cost-effective option I can recommend to you for repairing the broken glass on your 2014 CR-V's driver-side mirror is a product from CIPA, their Cut-and-Stick Acrylic Replacement Mirror # CM01100. This item is a 7 x 10-inch sheet of flexible acrylic mirror that includes an adhesive backing. You simply cut it to shape to match your existing mirror's glass and press on to install. If you prefer to replace the mirror entirely you can click on the link provided to see the K-Source...

  • Options for Carrying Two Kayaks on Roof of 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The first step would be to install crossbars on the roof of your CR-V, using the following parts: 58 inch load bars, part # THLB58 Podium foot pack, part # TH460 Vehicle specific fit kit, part # THKIT3118 The crossbars would bolt to your roof using fixed attachment points that already exist on your roof. Once the crossbars are in place, you'd then install the kayak carriers. A roller/saddle system might work better for you. For each kayak, you'd need a 1/2 HullyRoller system...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carriers for a 2014 Honda CR-V EX-L with Flush Side Rails
  • First, you are going to need some crossbars to fit the flush mount side rails on the roof of your 2014 Honda CR-V. On the rails there are fixed points to mount crossbars. This means the bars will be in a fixed position and you will not be able to change the bar spread. You can use the following parts to add locking crossbars: AeroBlade bars # THARB47 Foot pack # TH460R Fit kit # THKIT3118 Locks are sold separately, # TH544 For kayak carriers, since ocean kayaks are likely to be...

  • Availability of Large, Waterproof Cargo Bag for 2014 Honda CR-V with Factory Rails
  • I recommend the Rightline Sport 3 XL Rooftop Cargo Bag # RL100S30. This bag is waterproof to keep your cargo clean and dry and has UV ray protection. The bag has a corrosion-resistant zipper built into the underside of a protective flap to keep water out, while the flap secures shut with Velcro closures. The bag attaches to your rails using the 4 included straps. A couple things to keep in mind when using a rooftop cargo bag - first, check your owner's manual for the weight capacity...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V Naked Roof
  • The # TH400XT footpack that you mentioned has been replaced by the Thule Traverse Load bars # TH480 or # TH480R. Thule stopped offering fit information for the # TH400XT a few years ago so there are no confirmed fit kits that would allow you to use that foot pack on your 2015 Honda CR-V. You should still be able to reuse your square Thule Crossbars like the part # THLB50 that is recommended for your CR-V. However, you will still need to replace the foot pack and the fit kit. For...

  • Recommended Base Plates and Flat Towing Accessories for 2014 Ford C-Max
  • For the 2014 Ford C-Max, you'd need the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit, part # 524432-1. You'll also need some other items to complete your towing system. You'll need: -Safety cables like part # RM-643. -A wiring solution so the taillights work along with the RV, like the wireless magnetic tow lights from Pilot Automotive, part # NV-5164. -A supplemental braking system like the SMI Stay-In-Play DUO, part # SM99251 I'll link you to some of our help articles that contain much more information...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV AWD EX
  • The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75742 that you referenced would be your best option for a hitch. Removing the appearance panel would be your best option since your 2014 CRV is a leased vehicle. You might want to confirm that installing a hitch is allowed per the lease agreement. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. The hitch is about as low profile as you can get as it sit right under the rear bumper. For an economically priced bike rack that can tilt...

  • Recommended Rhino Rack Roof Rack for 2014 Honda CRV with Bare Roof
  • Since your CR-V has a bare roof, the Rhino Rack Complete Roof System with Square Crossbars you referred to would work just fine. Although they work very well, rectangular profile crossbars can create quite a bit of wind noise. If you think the wind noise might bother you, you might be better served going with a roof rack that uses crossbars that are more aerodynamic. Rhino Rack also offers Vortex crossbars which are much quieter. If you want a black roof rack, you'd need the following...

  • Comparison Between Hidden Hitch # 90089 and Draw-Tite # 36520 for 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are both sister companies that are owned by the same parent company, Cequent Performance Products. Other than the fact that the Hidden Hitch # 90089 includes a ball mount while the Draw-Tite # 36520 does not, both hitches are identical. The hitches share the same weight capacity, installation would be the same and the quality would be equal. If you'll be using the hitch for towing, go with the Hidden Hitch model as it includes the ball mount. You'll also need...

  • Can Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness From a 2011 Honda CRV Be Used on 2014 Honda CRV
  • The ability to use the hitch from your 2011 Honda CRV on the 2014 model is going to depend on which hitch you have. For example, I spoke with my contact at Curt and Trailer Hitch, # C11555, will fit multiple years of the CRV including the 2011 and the 2014 yet the other hitches we carry are not compatible with the newer model. If you happen to have a hitch that will work on the 2014, you will want to order new hardware before installing the hitch. Hardware is meant for one time installation...

  • How Does Height of Trailer Ball Figure Into Calculating Rise/Drop of Ball Mount
  • No, because you're measuring from the underside (bottom) of the coupler, most of the ball will be inside the coupler anyway, so the height of the ball isn't really relevant. The measurement method we provide is what the hitch manufacturers recommend, so that's what we go with. Ideally, the trailer tongue will be exactly level, but that won't always be possible. Being within 1-2 inches is fine, and if you have to choose between being tongue-high or tongue-low, go with tongue-high.

  • Parts Needed to Install Yakima Mako # Y04037 and Hully Roller # Y04035 on 2014 Honda CR-V Roof Rack
  • Both the Yakima Mako # Y04037 and Hully Roller # Y04035 kayak carrier components will mount directly on round or square roof rack crossbars, but to install these on your 2014 Honda CR-V's dealer-installed roof rack with oval (elliptical) crossbars you will need Yakima's Mighty Mount adapters as you noted. Your dealer-installed bars cannot be larger than 4-inches wide x 1-1/2-inches tall. For your 2014 Honda CRV's dealer-installed roof rack my contact at Yakima advises that you will need...

  • Yakima FrontLoader Bike Rack Interferes with Opening Rear Hatch on 2014 Honda CR-V
  • First, if possible, you can try moving the crossbars more forward on the roof of your 2014 Honda CR-V. That will move the FrontLoader, # Y02103, more forward and could solve the problem. Cutting the rack will void its warranty and could cause rack failure. You can place the rack on the roof backwards if you wanted to. That is an acceptable way to mount the rack.

  • Curt offers a 2-inch Class III trailer hitch receiver for the 2014 Honda CR-V, part # C13119, which is one of several options available for your car. This 2-inch hitch is rated for 350-lbs tongue weight and 3,500-lbs gross trailer weight. Please note that Curt requires use of a stabilizing strap for all non-trailer loads, such as bike and cargo carriers. Their strap # 18050 is an ideal solution.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Only certain Curt trailer hitches require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for non-trailer loads such as a bike rack. If you go with a Draw-Tite hitch # 36520 then you will not have to worry about that. The purpose of the strap is to reduce some of the stress on the trailer hitch. It does what it is supposed to do and wouldn't hurt to be used with any hitch if you wanted. The Draw-Tite hitch listed above is actually a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so...

  • Would Rhino Rack Universal KAYAK Side Loader Work with Thule HullaPort
  • The Rhino-Rack Universal Load Assist # RR-RUSL would work for you to help you get your kayak up into your Thule HullaPort part # TH834. It will allow you to set the kayak on the load assist and then use it as a pivot point to get the other end into the carrier. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.
