Great product, installation was easy and instructions very good. I didn't use any power tools and had to jack up the car put it on safety stands and use a creeper and it only took me one hr. I removed the spare tire and removed both brackets from the frame for the muffler. The T-one wiring harness yellow wire could have been about two or three inchs longer but I made it work. 43609

I ordered this for my PT Cruiser and it went on with no drama at all--perfect fit, very sturdy, and I've taken it on the road with no trouble at all. Very well made. One thing--if you don't have access to a lift, you might want to consider taking it to a shop and having it put on for you--especially if you're over 40 years old and installing the Curt wiring kit. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the design or the installation directions for any of the components--it just takes a lot less time and effort if you don't have to jack the car up on stands and do the limbo for a couple of hours. If you have a lift handy, I'd guess the install would take less than an hour total for both wiring and hitch. 66640

Price was great. Ordered on tuesday received on friday. Installation took about 45 minutes for the Hitch. Wiring took about an hour. Running wire from battery to rear was hardest part . Instructions were great. One of the easiest projects I've ever done. Would definetly recommend to anyone. Good Service, Reasonable Price, Fast Delivery, Easy Install, what more could You ask for. Thanks Russ 11523

Just installed it, it fit nice. The only thing I would suggest is that for your instructions I found I needed to remove my rear driver-side wheel in order to pull my exhaust off its hangers. Otherwise it was straight-forward. I usually have to double the amount of time most instructions say something will take but I'm used to this, I know I'm a hack. I'm looking forward to pulling my trailer. Thanks. 60984

So easy but a bit teadious as their is one bolt that is tucked behind the fuel fill tube. You have to use an open end wrench and take baby turns. I got the exhaust lowered in all of 1 minute. I didn't lower the spare tire and it still went in really easy. Great product and as I have already said... easy. 152453

The item arrived quickly, fit perfectly, and works just fine. Took about an hour to put in, but most of that time was removing the old tow hooks, wrestling with the rubber muffler mounts, etc. It's refreshing when a product is & does exactly as advertised; this did. 124453

  • Why Do I need a Stabilizer Strap to Use a 2 Bike Hitch Rack on a Curt # C11132 Hitch
  • The purpose of the stabilizer straps is to prevent the bouncing and jarring that bike racks usually experience when hitting bumps from damaging the hitch. The strap you would want is the Curt Bike Rack Strap, part # 18050. The reason you want to use a stabilizer strap is that you might twist your the hitch up or damage the frame of your 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser. If you use the stabilizer strap you would have no problem carrying two bikes on a hitch mounted bike carrier. For a bike...

  • Difference in Curt Hitch # C11132 and Hidden Hitch # 60818 for a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser
  • Both the Curt 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # C11132 and the Hidden Hitch 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 60818 for your 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser are very similar hitches. They both have a 200-lb tongue weight capacity. The difference in the two hitches is the Curt hitch does not require any drilling to install and the Hidden Hitch requires two 1/2 inch holes to be drilled in the frame. The Hidden Hitch might take a little longer to install, but because you are using six bolts to attach the hitch...

He also shows how to lower the exhaust. Make sure to follow the Curt instructions for the C11132 hitch, but you can watch the...

  • Can a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser Tow a Wave Runner

Although the Curt Class I receiver you mentioned has a 2000 lb towing/ 200 lb tongue weight capacity, you still must abide by the towing capacity of the vehicle. From what I have been able to determine, your PT Cruiser has a towing capacity of 1000 lbs. You will want to consult the owners manual to confirm this.

  • Stabilization Strap Use for a CURT Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier on a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser
  • For CURT Class I and II trailer hitches, when you have a non-trailer load such as a bike rack or in this case a cargo carrier, you can use the stabilization strap, # 18050. One end you will loop around the near edge of your carrier. The other end has a hook that will fit at the top of the rear hatch in the space between the roof and the hatch on your 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser. The strap needs to be snug but be careful not to over tighten the strap.

  • What Class Of Trailer Hitch Is Available For A 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser
  • The only hitches made for the 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser are Class I hitches like the Curt Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # C11132. Class I hitches are rated at 2,000 lbs. gross towing weight capacity and 200 lbs. tongue weight. The weight capacity you will be able to tow is determined by the towing weight capacity of your vehicle. The Chrysler PT Cruiser has a low towing weight capacity and that is why there are no Class II or Class III hitches available for your vehicle.
