Safety Recall: 2022 CR-V Hybrid Left Side Driveshaft



Year Model Trim VIN Range
2022 CR-V Hybrid All Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.



A small number of 2022 CR-V Hybrids were manufactured with front driveshafts that have constant velocity joints (CV Joint) which were improperly manufactured. If the complete driveshaft is not replaced it could result in premature wear, excessive noise, vibration, and over time possible part failure. The affected vehicles will only have a left side front driveshaft that will need to be replaced. No vehicles will require both front driveshafts to be replaced. The VIN inquiry system will identify which vehicle needs the left side front driveshaft to be replaced.



Owners of affected vehicles will be sent a notification of this campaign.

Do an iN VIN status inquiry to make sure the vehicle is shown as eligible.

Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your new or used vehicle inventory.

Failure to repair a vehicle subject to a recall or campaign may subject your dealership to claims or lawsuits from the customer or anyone else harmed as a result of such failure. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this safety recall, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.

  • Do not pull on the driveshaft, or the inboard joint may come apart.
  • When removing the inboard joint from the differential make sure it is straight to avoid damaging the oil seal.

13. Install the new spindle nut and torque it to328 N.m (242 lb-ft) using a torque wrench. If you are going to use an Air or Battery Powered Impact Gun to install the nut, make sure to turn down the air or power so you do not overtighten it, then torque it to specification using a torque wrench.

NOTE: Do not use a stake, punch, or screwdriver in the brake rotor to keep it from moving, have an assistant press on the brakes while you are tightening.
