Gen4 (2012+) Honda CRV brake fluid flush (1 person method)


This video shows the rinsing process of the brake fluid on a 4th generation Honda CR-V (2012+). The video shows an EX AWD 2013 model, but I believe the process should be the same for all finish levels of this generation.

You must only use DOT3 and DOT4 brake fluids, not DOT5. The DOT4 will have a higher dry boiling point, but in normal operation (that is, without towing or downhill in high mountains), there should be no observable difference between DOT3 and DOT4 . Conventional wisdom says that the boiling point of the DOT4 liquid will fall faster for the same amount of absorbed moisture (the brake fluid is highly hygroscopic), so I prefer DOT3 in my vehicles with a service interval reasonable (~ 2 years, independent of honeyage).

The use of Honda brake fluid is not necessary in this case. Prestone and Valvoline fluids (or whatever is available) will work very well here.

The process presented here is called the one-person method and does not require the use of specialized tools. I prefer to use this method even with 2 people because it is easier and it takes less time.

I hope you find this video helpful, happy!
