... and before anyone asks why... I'm installing a hitch on my wife's 05 tC so that she can put a bike rack on the back. Summertime bikes rides down the NJ shore etc.
Anyway, I am reading through the sparse instructions that came with the hitch, and it talks about enlarging a 3/4" access hole on the passenger side. For anyone who has already gone thru the hitch install, could you shed a bit more light on the install?
I have my regular tools, but just want to make sure that I don't need anything special before I start to work on it.
Yeah, the hitch I've got (made by Curt, I believe) is very discreet. It's a class 1 hitch that is barely noticeable below the bumper. I will take a photo when the job is done, so you can see how it looks.
There's already pre-drilled holes in the frame for a hitch - it's primarily just a case of bolting it on. I just want to know if anyone can shed a bit more clarity on the 'enlarging the access hole' part of the instructions before I start to work underneath it...
Now, as for the tC towing stuff... I'm originally from the UK, and one of the delights of long weekends (such as what we're celebrating over here right now), is being stuck behind a procession of 1.6 Liter cars towing big caravans
