If the pipe disconnects, the engine will stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the disconnected pipe may leak fuel, which, in the presence of an ignition source, can increase the risk of a fire.
The affected vehicles have a fuel supply pipe that may have been improperly manufactured, possibly resulting in the pipe disconnecting and leaking while driving.
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel supply pipe, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin August 25, 2017.

Safety Recall: 2017 CR-V Rear Fuel Feed Pipe Leaks
|2017||CR-V||1.5 L and 2.4 L||Check the iN VIN status for eligibility.|
Some fuel feed pipes were not manufactured to specification. The connector between the fuel feed pipe and the fuel line may come loose when the fuel line is pressurized. If the fuel line comes loose, it may result in leaking fuel, which, in the presence of an ignition source, may increase the risk of a fire. A loose fuel line may also cut off fuel to the engine and cause it to stall, which may increase the risk of a crash.
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.
Replace the fuel feed pipe using two new retainers.

Skill Level: Repair Technician
- Flammable – Keep away from fire. If fuel ignites, it will cause a serious incident.
- Relieve the fuel pressure before disconnecting the fuel line to avoid the risk of spraying pressurized fuel.
- Disconnect the 12 volt battery negative terminal before disconnecting the electrical connector to reduce the risk of a fire caused by sparks.
- Do not apply brake fluid, engine coolant, plant-based oil, or alcohol-based oil to the O-ring. Incorrect fluid or oil may cause the material to deteriorate or other damage.
- Relieve the fuel pressure. Refer to the service information.
- Do the battery disconnection procedure to disconnect the negative battery cable. Make sure to isolate it so it doesn’t unintentionally spark.
- 1.5 L Models only: Remove the intake air resonator.
- Release the two brake line clips on the firewall.
- Remove the heater hose bracket at the firewall.
- Release the engine harness cable clamp by removing the nut.
- Remove the fuel feed pipe stay as shown.

- Remove the fuel feed pipe from the engine compartment.
NOTE: You may have to twist the fuel feed pipe to remove it from the vehicle.
- Check that the connection points are clean, then install the new fuel feed pipe using the new retainers. Make sure the connections are secure and the tabs are firmly locked into place. Visually check each connection and also pull on the connector.
- Reconnect the battery.
- Check for fuel leaks by turning the vehicle to ON, but do not start the engine. After the fuel pump runs for about 2 seconds, the fuel line will be pressurized. Repeat this 2-3 times, then check that the connections are secure and that there are no leaks or rattles.
- Reinstall the remaining parts in the reverse order of removal.
- Permanently damage the original fuel feed pipe by bending or breaking it to ensure it cannot be reused.
