Haven't taken new CRV to Auto car wash yet. Is that Antenna ok to leave on?

    I remember reading a post somewhere awhile back. That poster stated the antenna "unscrews" so you can remove it for car wash. I personnally hand wash mine so have not looked into this but check it out he may be right!!! :)

    Good memory. Thanks. In October somebody said it says in the owner's manual to unscrew it for car wash. Between the owner's manual, Nav system manual and other books, I don't have the time to read them. I'm waiting for the movie to come out.
    Thanks again.

    The manual says--just to play it safe I'd guess--to remove it. The CR-V is shipped with a plastic cap that snaps over the antenna base fitting. It's just the thing to add a measure of protection when going through a car wash.

    Someone on this thread, I think, said their dealer left it in the glove box. I went back to mine and asked for it.

    After your posting I called the service department and they said just unscew antenna and don't worry about plastic cap.
    Movie will be out next month.

    I am patiently awaiting & biting my nails... On line movie sites seem to be in agreement calling it the "blockbuster of the year"... I quote "could outsell star wars"... does this mean we have to wait a year or more for the DVD!! :)

    I think I'll just read the manuals and forget the movie.

    Isn't the book always better than the movie?

    I guess someone should contact Honda and partner them with the publisher of those Books for Dummies, and have an "Owner's Manual for Dummies"

    Why would someone spend $25,000 or more on a purchase and not bother reading the operating instructions? I guess some think they know it all and don't need stinking books.

    I thought about not responding to your comments.
    We joined in bantering back and forth and expect a certain amount of sense of humor.
    While I will answer your comments, I feel that you should take my comments about the books in the spirit in which it was given.

    Honda does provide a fairly complete summary of what is needed in the wire bound quick start guide. As we already own a TL with the same nav system, it wasn't necessary to reread that guide.
    It took a little while yesterday to find which book had the same paragraph about the antenna.

    As far as the comment about the stinking books, that's my business. I thought we were having a lighthearted time yesterday.

    Apparently, some people just don't have a sense of humor.

    That's how I took it. In any case, let's move on. :)

    For what is is worth... I too enjoyed in the bantering back & forth, bluiedgod "IT WAS JUST THAT... SOME SIMPLE FUN AMONG FELLOW POSTERS" I feel no one benefits from your comments, as it seems to be a habit of yours. To all, If you have nothing of benefit to add please refrain from commenting. Thanks in advance.

    I feel we should move on. Oh, wait, I already said that! Let's please stay on topic. Twice is my limit. :)

    Thank you for your advice. As it turns out, unless you are tall enough, it is difficult to reach up there and remove antenna.
