Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2005 Cadillac CTS

Today we are working on a 2005 Cadillac CTS. We will be installing a Draw-Tite hitch, part number 24767. This will also be comparable to Hidden Hitch part number 60830. Here are a couple of measurements that will assist you with ing accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost point of the bumper is approximately 6-3/4 inches. And from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is approximately 9-3/4 inches. 0:27

Our first step towards installing our hitch is going to actually be to lower the exhaust. But before I do that, I want to take a safety strap and put it across the exhaust so that the exhaust will not fall any further than I need it to. With my safety strap on, I am then going to take some liquid penetrant and spray each one of the muffler hangers. There are going to be two in the rear and one in the front on each side. This lubricant will make it easier to remove the rubber hangers and then to reinstall them later. Alright, with all of my hangers lubed down, we can go ahead and remove them. That completes the three on the driver side. I will go ahead and repeat the same process on the passenger side. 1:09

Next we need to get into the trunk of the vehicle and we are going to remove the spare tire cover. With the cover out of the way, we can remove the four tie-down hooks so that we can peel back the carpet. So when we drill the holes from underneath, we will not drill into our carpet. There are the two on the passenger side. I will repeat the same process for the two on the driver side. With the spare tire cover and hold downs removed, we can go ahead and peel back the carpeting to give ourselves plenty of room to work with when we drill our holes. We will do this on both sides. Now with everything out of the way in the trunk and our exhaust lowered, we can go ahead and put our hitch up in position. What we are going to do at this time is get an extra set of hands. One person will hold the hitch in place while the other uses a drill bit to mark the center of the holes. 2:12

With our holes drilled out, we now need to take our bolt plates and put them over the holes that we drilled on the inside of the trunk. But before we do that, we want to take some sealer that will help hold out any moisture from the outside and also any exhaust gases that could seep into the trunk compartment. Once you have your bolt plate in place, we can take our bolts and them in. Alright, now go ahead and repeat the same process on the driver side. Now with our bolt fasteners in place, we can go ahead and put our hitch back up into position and bolt it down. It is a good time to get an extra set of hands to help you hold it in place while you install your fasteners. We are using lock washers and nuts as our fasteners. We are just installing our fasteners finger tight at this time until we get all four fasteners in place. There are the two on the driver side. We will repeat the same process on the passenger side. 3:35

With all four fasteners run down, we can go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. That completes the driver side. I will repeat the same process on the passenger side. With our hitch tightened down, we can go ahead and reinstall our exhaust. There is the driver side. I will repeat the same process on the passenger side. With our exhaust reinstalled, we can go ahead and remove our safety strap and this completes the installation of our Draw-Tite hitch, part number 24767.

I bought a trailer hitch for a Cadillac CTS, and although I didn't install it yet it looks pretty straightforward, I was glad for the quick shipping and the product looks to be of good quality, it was also nice that they provided me tracking information. I will know more in when I install this . 108777

  • How Hidden is the Hidden Hitch # 60830 on a 2006 Cadillac CTS
  • While this Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 60830, is mostly out of plain site, it is not completely hidden. Hidden Hitch is actually the brand name for this hitch. If you want to get an idea of what this hitch looks like installed check out the video I attached below. At this time we do not have any pictures of the hitch installed but you can get a pretty good idea by watching the installation video. I could not safely recommend that you cut off a portion of the hitch and then...

  • Trailer Hitch, Hitch Ball, and Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2010 Cadillac CTS
  • For the 2010 Cadillac CTS sedan (excluding the CTS-V), the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitches are made by the same company, so apart from the name they are the same with the exception that the Hidden Hitch comes with a drawbar, hitch pin and clip. The Curt hitch has a very similar design but its installation is a little more difficult. So for a quicker install, I would go with the Draw-Tite or Hidden Hitch. Both the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch have the same specifications: Class I, 1-1/4 inch,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Cadillac CTS Sedan With Removable Ball Mount
  • It sounds like you want a trailer hitch with a ball mount and hitch ball that can be removed. There are trailer hitches available for your 2011 Cadillac CTS Sedan that will allow you to use a 2 inch ball on a removable ball mount. The trailer hitch that I would recommend for you is the Hidden Hitch Class I Trailer Hitch, # 60830. This hitch comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip. You would only need to add the hitch ball. For a 2 inch hitch ball, use part # 19258. If you want a 1-7/8...

  • Comparing The Available Trailer Hitches For A 2008 Cadillac CTS
  • All of the hitches available for the 2008 Cadillac CTS have the same characteristics in terms of towing and tongue weight capacity. Each hitch has a 2000 pound towing capacity and 200 pound tongue weight capacity. Where they differ is the towing components included with the hitch. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24767, which is the lower priced hitch, does not include a drawbar, pin or clip. The Curt Hitch, part # 11307, which is the highest priced hitch for your vehicle includes...

  • Why are Stabilizing Straps Required For Bike Racks on Curt Trailer Hitch # 11307, 2005 Cadillac STS
  • The Curt Manufacturing warranty requires that a stabilizing strap be used on all non-trailer loads on their Class I and II trailer hitches, like # 11307 for your 2005 Cadillac STS. The purpose of the strap is to relieve some of the stress on the trailer hitch associated with bike racks and cargo carriers. If you decide to go with the Curt hitch, you can use Curt Bike Rack Strap with Cambuckle, # 18050. Or, you can use a ratchet strap like # 1157300, or basically any strap that will...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Cadillac CTS
  • The location and visibility of a trailer hitch on your 2010 Cadillac CTS will be almost identical between Curt, # C11307, Hidden Hitch, # 60830, and Draw-Tite, # 24767. Each of these trailer hitches use the same mounting location and have practically the same dimensions. For an exact measurement, the end of the receiver from the Curt hitch will actually sit 1/8 of an inch closer to the rear edge of the bumper. As far as aesthetics are concerned, I agree that the Curt hitch has a more...
