I want the factory hitch. Can I do this install myself? I can’t seem to find what parts come in the kit. The dealer is not helping me. Can I order this online opposed for buying from my local dealer?

Just completed installing the above (second install since I did the same for my 2015). Here are my comments on the job:

- It is a lot of work, doable but a lot of work - took me around 5+ hours.

- I suspect if you own a torque wrench you know your way around a car and it is a good indication that you can do this.

- Having molding removal tools is definitely a plus so as not to scratch the plastic molding pieces you have to remove to install the wiring harness.

- The two 10MM (16mm long) wire harness bracket bolts are missing. You can use one of the three storage floor screws that you remove to get to the harness location to take to the hardware store as an example as the threads are the same for the wire harness bracket.

- The wire harness kit comes with two relays that go into one of the fuse boxes under the hood behind the headlights. When I went to install them there were already the exact two relays so now I have two extras.

- I used a Dremel tool to cut the rear facia and it went well just go slow.

- It helps a lot to have someone hold up the hitch on one side while you are attaching the other side. The thing is pretty heavy.

- Make sure you plug the receptacle latch cap into the hitch before lifting and bolting the hitch into place because the finishing piece hole is not big enough for the insertion of the receptacle at 90 degrees which is required to turn it into place. This assumes that you attached the finisher piece before bolting on the hitch which was recommended in the instructions. If you attached the finisher last then this is not a big deal either way.

- Good luck, got a few sore muscles today!

By the way for anyone attempting to install hitch I built wooden ramp which help elevate the car about 8” made huge difference getting under and working comfortably. I had bought two 2x10 pressure treated planks for it. It probably cost about the same as the plastic ones sold on amazon but I found mine way more sturdier than plastic, plus some so the reviews of those plastic ones weren’t too good. There are some YouTube how to videos if anyone is interested in making his/her own.

I bought a demo 2017 with no hitch. I bolted on an aftermarket, the wiring is right there in back to connect up. I lose a little ground clearance in back since my hitch sits at the bottom of the bumper vs a cut out. About $150 total. And yes you can buy all the parts necessary to bolt on a factory hitch!!

Cowtown Dave: Did you test the wiring To see if it works? Not sure it will work without installing the wiring harness kit that goes with the factory hitch. ����*♂
