Cargo lid won't open when it's cold out

Asked by Jan 20, 2015 at 08:10 AM about the 2013 Honda CR-V EX-L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My lid gets stuck--caught on something--and just won't open when it's colder outside for
some reason. It doesn't happen every time (if it's a little warmer out it seems to be ok) so
when we took it to the dealer for repair they said there was no problem. Frustrating. Any
ideas what we can do?

Intermittent problems can be frustrating. Sounds like the tolerances between the lid and body are just a hair too close. When cold things contract and it sticks but when it warms up things expand and there's enough clearance for the lid to open. The next time it gets stuck go right back to the dealer and show them. Don't bother calling just go up. They'll be able to look at it real quick and see what's going on. HTH. -Jim
