    Whilst cleaning car noted something dangling down just behind the front bumper not sure what it is could be temperature sensor looks as though it should be more secure, first thought was distance sensor that had come unseated but all looks OK on that score.
    Anyone have a GEN3 CR-V Diesel to hand to have a look or any other ideas:Unknown:

    theres a good chance its the outside temp sensor buddy. should be clipped up but its not difficult for a small bump to break it off without much damage visable to the bumper. so long as its not too damaged your best securing it back up.

    On the accord there is metal clamp behind the number plate and on top of the temperature sensor it has a channeled cut,when slid on the metal clamp it holds the sensor in place.

    if you we're to remove the slam cover (bonnets catch area ) you can easily get both your hands in to push the sensor back on . If ridges of the channel grove are broken use two stiff elastic rubber bands to hold it.

    No problem but if you are feeling brave to take the task yourself let me know will get the CR-V front end layed out for you so you can have a guide.:Wink:

    Bowler for you its the same as the Accord as suspected.

    Remove the clips (A, B) by carefully pulling the front grille cover (C) up, then remove the cover by releasing the front edge of the cover from the grille (D). Take care not to scratch the body.
    NOTE: To remove the clips, pry the inner clip up at the edge near the line (E) on its head.
    Install the cover in the reverse order of removal, and note these items:
    • Check if the clips are damaged or stress-whitened, and if necessary, replace them with new ones.
    • Push the clips and hooks into place securely.

    Look down and you see your sensor dangling get the sensor and slide it on the metal tab.

    Thanks again, no charge for dealer to do as under warranty and had to take in anyway, currently having new clutch master cylinder to cure squeak will save diagram if it pops out again
