Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Cadillac SRX - Hidden Hitch

Today on our 2012 Cadillac SRX we're going to install Hidden Hitch, part number 87573. This is what our hitch will look like once it's installed. We'll go ahead and give you a couple of measurements to assist you with selecting accessories. From the center of the hitch pin hole to outer most edge of the bumper is 3 inches, from the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 19 inches. This will assist you with selecting accessories such as a draw bar, a bike rack, or a cargo carrier. Now let's go ahead with the installation.

Our first step is to remove the rear fascia door. There are two fasteners securing it in position. With the fascia door removed, we'll now have access to the two weld nuts in the bumper Next we need to remove the spacer blocks, one on each side and secure the rear fascia. There'll be two fasteners and one nut that will need to be removed in order to remove one of the spacers. We'll pry the center out of the pushpin fastener and then remove it.

Alright, with the passenger's side removed we'll go ahead and repeat the same process on the driver's side. Next, we'll go ahead and point out our attachment points for the inside of each frame rail. We'll have two on the driver's side and two on the passenger's side. These are weld nuts that we'll be using our new 12-mm bolts to secure our hitch in place. We'll be using the new 12-mm bolts along with the 1/2 inch conical tooth washer.

Now that we've put our hitch in place we'll be working behind the fascia and securing it to the weld nut. Keep in mind on the driver's side, you need to be careful not to harm or damage the wiring harness. Now is a good time to get an extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch in place while you install your fasteners. Quick tech tip, we're working on a brand new vehicle so the weld nuts are clean. However, in some cases you'll need to clean out the weld nuts before you can install your hardware.

I recommend using some spray lubricant and a half inch Nylon Tube Brush, part number 814092 to thoroughly clean those weld nuts out before you attempt to install your new hardware. We'll install each of our fasteners finger tight until we get them all in place. Now with all our fasteners installed we'll go ahead and tighten them down. Now with all our fasteners tightened down we'll go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with our hitch installed and torqued to specifications we'll go ahead and reinstall the plastic support pieces for the rear fascia. The fascia door cover is now taken up by the hitch so we will not be reinstalling it. However, we'll go ahead and reinstall the fastening screws should the customer ever choose to remove the hitch. They can reinstall the fascia door. And that will do it for our install of the Hidden Hitch, part number 87573 on our 2012 Cadillac SRX.

Got the hitch, installed within 30 min and I used a multimaster saw to cut out rear plate to finish installation. I included two photos 79775


Hi, Jerry...I love what you did with the rear plate. In all my research what you did looks the best. Would you be able to share with me some tipsinstructions on how you did this? Thank you very much.Lou

comment by: Lou F - 05/10/2014


Looks awesome. Got the same color Caddy and was looking to put this on. It hitch looks fairly flush with the back and i love how you put the plastic back on to hide the side bar. Was cutting the middle plastic piece hard?

comment by: Sean - 06/23/2014


Jerry, am installing hitch on wifes srx ,been thinking there must be a way to cut the facia plate to hide some of the openess. Looks like you solved the issue,care to share on exactly you did this. I am able to cut and machine things , but advise from some like yourself is always helpful. Thank you

comment by: Ray B - 08/06/2014


It has been over a year so I kinda forget detail but I do remember I removed a small amount of plastic. It was easy with a plung saw and using a 1 blade. The only trouble with the way I did it is you have to modify your locking pin when you install hitch. You cant push pin whole way thru hole to hole due to plastic restricting that pushing all the way from one side to the other. However I made change to a new pin I brought at Harbor Freight to handle the job just fine. Hope this is of some help . If you look close at second picture you can see what I removed from the center plastic car shield.

Excellent receiver hitch! Installation was a breeze. I watched the instructional video and was able install this without any problems whatsoever. I opted to go with the Hidden Hitch over the Curt for a few reasons. First and most importantly, I'd read two customer reviews on different websites stating that the Curt hitch had misaligned holes and was a tight fit. I didn't want to have 5 of the 6 screws installed and be struggling to fit the last one. That kind of poor quality control infuriates me. Secondly, I thought the Curt was an unnecessarily heavy 34 lbs. (shipping weight) compared to HH's weight of only 18 lbs. A tighter fit and heavier weight would certainly make installation more difficult. Thus the increased installation time of 40:00 compared to the HH's 30:00. If I was towing a speed boat I might want the extra heft, but for the bike rack I'm using it would be overkill. Third, I love the tubular design. To me it just looks more modern. For those wondering, the Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite and Reese versions of this hitch are exactly the same. The same company (Cequent) makes all three. Thanks for making this whole experience a pleasant one. Now it's time to do some cycling. 18484

Thanks for a perfect fitting product. Works great and installed in 10 minutes. 76351


What type or manufacturer is your bike rack?

comment by: Bob S - 07/13/2013


That is a Thule T2 bike rack, part TH916XTR. That is the 2 inch hitch version. The T2 is also available for 1-1/4 inch hitches as part number TH917XTR. If you have any questions about the racks, let me know. You will find a whole bunch of videos these rack pages and may be able to find the rack on your exact vehicle.

Great hitch for my 2010 Cadillac SRX - it is a perfect fit and installation was very easy. I ordered on a Thursday and received my hitch the following Monday - email notifications kept me posted from the time of order to a follow up after delivery. 81481


After a year this product continues to work perfectly - It is a great hitch for my 2010 Cadillac SRX

Great Price. I really liked that they have videos for you to view. I highly suggest watching them as they are very straight forward. Watched it twice and then installed in less than 30 minutes. Saved $350.00 over what Uhaul wanted for the hitch and installation. Thank you etrailer..... 123426


Best decision on where to buy. Installation was a breeze.

2014 Cadillac SRX. I watched the video on installation and it was super easy. It took me longer to open all the boxes than to install the hitch. One thing I highly recommend is checking that all the bolts fit in the pre-tapped holes in your car. One hole in particular had some obstruction I couldn't remove with a brush or even compressed air, so I ran an M12 tap to clear the treads and that took care of it. This would have been a lot harder if I had the hitch mounted in place already. I also bought the wiring harness and the universal mount kit for my 4-pole light plug. This all fit as easy as the hitch itself. Great value too. 212718

My etrailer purchase experiance has been a very pleasurable one. The vehicle selection match up process,pre-sale instructional video and follow up customer service was excellent. The hitch and wiring harness was delivered ahead of schedule even though I received a customer service call that my choice of hitches would be delayed a few days. I was given the option at that time to substutite but I elected to stay with my first choice. All hardware installed exaclty as the online instructional video and the enclosed instructions directed . I installed this hitch in about 1.5 hours without a lift. My wife was also very pleased to see things went well without my usual DYI kit frustrations that result in screaming and throwing of tools :) Thank You 21274

I decided to be able to transport my mountain bikes on the back of my new car. So I went on your website and without any difficulty I was able to find the hitch and the bike rack I needed. I ordered both items on a Sunday evening. I immediately received a confirmation response. To my surprise, my shipping was free and upgraded at no additional charge. I received both items within 4 days. The video instructions included were excellent and easy to follow. I had the entire trailer mount and bike rack installed in less than an hour. Both products are of exceptional quality and fit my vehicle perfectly. This entire purchase from start to finish was handled in the utmost professional manner and painless on my part. I highly recommend 52213

Excellent product!! Fit perfectly!! 20 min install including the wiring harness!! Watch the install video first though. Its less than 4 mins long and will save you much more time than that. It points out some things to do involving removal/loosening of some bumper trim plastic first that I wouldn't have thought to do first. Install the wiring harness before the hitch or else its kind of hard to get to. Good idea to have a torque wrench also. Torque specs are 68 Lb-Ft for all 6 bolts. Over tightened bolts loose strength so a torque wrench is a good idea. If your enough of a handy man to own a socket set and a torque wrench, you can install this hitch yourself no problem. You don't even need to jack the car up!! 39695

Despite my wife's concerns, This 59 year old insurance man with my wife helping me line it up (she helped for about 10 minutes), decided to try installing it myself. I had installed it in my driveway in less than 30 minutes, The video was a huge help, but trying to pull those 4 pins out of the bumper seemed challenging on the first one. I decided to try with those brackets left on the bumper. I had no problem slipping the hitch receiver in with those brackets on, only removing the small nut holding the brackets themselves to the car. The receiver slipped in for me easily as the lower part of the bumper is very flexible. Thank you again for the great service and instructions! 65621

The hidden hitch and wiring was a perfect fit for my 2011 cadillac srx . After watching the how to install video provided by etrailer it only took me like 15 minutes and i was ready to go. I will only be pulling a 6x9 trailer loaded with my riding mower at the moment. I dont own a truck so it wasnt easy for me to move my things around now it wont be a problem. Thanks etrailer you have really dedicated employees who really care about helping your customers every question i emailed was responded promptly. 59139

Great hitch,simple to install. Had problems getting the controller and all the wiring behind the tail light. I think this controller is larger than the one in the video. It only takes a pair of tin snips and a few minutes of cutting to make the center facia look and fit great. 43187

Prompt ( three days from order) delivery. Product appears to be as advertised. I believe I can install myself.. in the morning. Wish I had a hoist or some blocking. This hitch, to carry bikes, goes on my wife's pride and joy Cad SRX and she only agreed to this invasion of her car's purity because it promises not to protrude. My challenge is to fulfill that promise. Great product; excellent written and video install instructions, and unbelievably speedy delivery. 48750

Shipping Dept.: Be careful when using packaging tape to wrap all the ordered products together. This can damage some of the more sensitive items in the shipment and also makes it a hassle to get all the unwanted adhesive off. I had to use alcohol to remove all the sticky tape residue. Other than that products arrived OK. Thank you! 32815

This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so not weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight).

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation to Tow a 3,000 Pound Pop Up Camper with a 2012 Cadillac SRX
  • The Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87573 has a gross trailer weight capacity of 4,000 pounds so it can more than handle the 3,000 pound gross weight of the trailer you plan on towing. However you will want to look at the vehicle owners manual to determine what the towing capacity of the vehicle is. Whatever is lower, that is the capacity you must go by. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So if the trailer weighs 3,000 pounds that would make the tongue...

  • Roof Rack and Trailer Hitch Options for Carrying Golf Bags on a 2010 Cadillac SRX
  • If your 2010 Cadillac SRX has the factory installed crossbars that run side to side then the Rhino-Rack Master-Fit cargo box # RRRMFZ66 will fit the bars. The box is 70 inches long overall so unless you adjust the crossbars, if possible, forward and the mounting need in the box backward (which will make the box sit further forward on the roof rack) the box could interfere with the antenna. If you need to add crossbars you can use # SR1009 which will fit all models, including Sport models. The...

  • Can 2015 Cadillac SRX Pull a Harley Davidson CVO Limited
  • Your 2015 Cadillac SRX can be used to tow a Harley Davidson CVO Limited motorcycle as long as you install a Class III hitch on it with a 2 inch receiver like the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch part # 87573. This hitch has a 400 lb tongue weight rating which means as long as the weight of your Harley plus the carrier weighs less than this you would be good. Check out the video of this hitch on a 2013 Cadillac SRX at right. I couldn't find how much your Harley weighs, but it seems likely that...

  • Rear Fascia Modification for Installing a Hitch on a 2012 Cadillac SRX
  • We carry hitches confirmed to fit your 2012 Cadillac SRX like the # 87573 that you referenced, but we do not carry any rear fascias for your vehicle. When you install this hitch you will have to remove the center section of your current rear fascia. It is possible that is what you are referring to. Check out the install instructions for more info on that. Check out the install video I attached for more info.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For Bike Rack on 2010 Cadillac SRX
  • We do have several hitch options for your 2010 Cadillac SRX that you can use a bike rack with. I have provided a link to these options for you.

My recommendation would be to choose...

  • Recommended Hitch for 2011 Cadillac SRX
  • There are Class II and Class III hitches available for your SRX. I'd recommend going with a Class III hitch because it's more common and there's more accessories available for the 2 inch Class III receiver. I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13002. This hitch has a higher capacity than the other hitches, but you might be limited by the towing capacity of your vehicle, consult your owner's manual for specifics. This hitch is actually the lowest-priced of the Class III options,...
