Trailer Hitch Installation – 2010 Volkswagen Jetta – Draw-Tite – etrailer.com


Today in this 2010 Volkswagen Jetta, we’re
going to install part number 24866 from Draw-Tite. All right, this is what the hitch looks like
once installed on the car. Next, we’ll give you some measurements that
will help you out in selecting some accessories such as a bicycle carrier or a cargo carrier. From the center receiver opening to the outside
edge of the bumper is going to be 4-1/4 inches and from the top of the receiver opening down
to the ground is going to be 11 inches. Now, we’ll go ahead and show you how the hitch
in installed. All right, first step is to go ahead and remove
the plastic fascia from underneath the passenger’s side of the vehicle. There are at least torque spits to remove
and two plastic nuts. And now we’ll go ahead and lower the exhaust. There will be two bolts spotted into the muffler
that we have to remove to lower it to get it out of our way. And also, when looking at
the bracket, there are two small tabs on the exhaust bracket
that we have to bend up to move out of the way for the hitch. Now, we can go ahead and search for attachment
points for the hitch.
