Like many people reviewing the G8HL-H71 clutch relay, I too was quite surprised how easy it was to resolve the issue around intermittent performance of my 2008 CRV air conditioner. Both the OEM dealer and an aftermarket repair shop made no mention of the potential relay issue, as they focused on the lucrative clutch repair that reaches around $900.00 Canadian. Needless to say, after watching some straightforward YouTube videos and reading these Amazon reviews, I simply purchased a new relay and took the needed 5 minutes to install it. Problem solved. Quite happy that 30.00 + 5 minutes is so much better than 900.00
A small piece of advice on install: remove the relay directly behind the clutch relay as it is larger and easier to grasp. Set it aside for a few seconds while you grasp the clutch relay to more easily remove it. Replace the clutch relay, then re-insert the other relay afterwards. So much easier !
