Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Honda CR-V - Curt

Today on this 2013 Honda CR-V, were going to install part number C13119 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like when its installed on the vehicle. Next well give you some measurements to help you out selecting some accessories such as a ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 14-1/2 inches. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the edge of the bumper will be about 1-3/4 inches. Now well go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed.

First thing we need to do is go ahead and remove a panel thats underneath the vehicle. Now it covers most of the bottom of the vehicle. There will be a variety of fasteners you have to remove. On this particular vehicle we remove two screws, three bolts, and five plastic fasteners. Our next step would be to go ahead and mark and cut a hole in the panel for our hitch; however, in this instance the owner elected to leave the panel off.

All right, next well go ahead and lower the exhaust. Well spray down on two rubber hangers with some lubricant and then pry them off. That will get the exhaust out of the way and now we can show you where attachment points are. Theyre located here and here, the threaded holes in the frame. This is above the exhaust and its the same thing over on the driver side.

Now well go ahead and clean out the thread with some lubricant first and then use a tube brush to help clean out the threads. That will be part number 814092. Now on a newer vehicle this shouldnt be a problem with the threads, but the older the vehicle gets, dirt and debris will get in there and more work this will take, and maybe eventually, you would need a thread tap. Now before we install our hitch, we have to take two washers and just tape it to the hitch for spacers. We will do this in the holes that are rearmost or closest to the bumper.

Now well go ahead and start installing our hitch. Well take the hitch. Lay it on top of the exhaust with the rod going through the hitch. Then well lift up the driver side and install the hardware. Well install a metric bolt and a conical tooth washer. Well make sure the teeth on the conical tooth washer always face up towards the hitch. Well get the driver side loosely installed then go over to the passenger side. With those bolts loosely installed, well go to the tow loop, put our U-bolt through there and install a flange nut for the U-bolt. Now with all our hardware installed, well go ahead and tighten it down, and then go ahead and torque the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With all the bolts torqued down, well go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. And with that, that will finish it for our install of part number C13119 from Curt on our 2013 Honda CR-V.

Quality product. Good quality welds and powder-coated paint. The installation took me about 1 hour and 30 minutes. The majority of that time was related to the trim panel which is removed, cut, and then reinstalled. I did the work in my garage with no lift or jack. I find it "interesting" that the video does not show the cutting and re-installation of this panel because the "customer did not want this panel re-installed" ;-).... If the panel is removed and not re-installed this job could probably be done in 30 minutes. I used a silver-colored Sharpie to mark the cutout on the panel. I recommend using a utility knife (with a sharp blade) instead of a rotary tool. The material cuts easily and the utility knife leaves edges that are straight with no burrs. I used a pair of scissors to cut the fiberglass insulation so that the edges were "clean". My Honda CR-V had mud flaps installed so I had to remove the rear driver's side flap (not a problem at all--2 screws). For lowering the muffler, I definitely recommend the use of WD-40 (or other lubricant) on the rubber hangers (like shown in the video). The lubricant helps a lot. Before I started to pry the rubber hangers off of the muffler, I used a pair of large channel-lock pliers--one jaw on the rubber hanger and the other jaw on the end of the muffler tube. I squeezed to get the barbed end of the muffler tube to go inside of the rubber hanger. After that, I could pull the rubber hanger off of the muffler tube. The hitch itself fit perfectly. It is a little bit challenging to torque the front bolt on the muffler side because there is not much room for the torque wrench above the muffler (which is hanging down because it was removed from the rubber hangers). When putting the U-bolt on, I would suggest tightening the 2 nuts evenly. I alternated between one nut and the other, turning the nuts about 1/2 turn at the time. This guarantees that the U-bolt seats properly on the towing hook. A note about the type of plastic clips that are used on my vehicle... These clips consist of 2 parts: an outer sleeve and a inner pin that slides down into the sleeve. When the pin is pushed into the sleeve, it causes the barbs on the sleeve to expand so that the barbs will not pull out of the panel that the clip is holding. When I first started this job, I was trying to pry out the whole clip (i.e. prying out on the outer sleeve). I realized after removing 1 clip that I should be prying up on the inner pin of the clip. When the pin pops up, the fastener can be pulled out easily from the panel. Similarly when re-installing the fasteners, do not try to "hammer" the fastener back into the holes; instead, pull up on the pin, easily press the fastener into the panel hole, and then push down on the pin to lock it into place in the panel. Very neat design. The fasteners on my Jeep are just one-piece plastic barbs--these on the Honda CR-V are much nicer. The instructions are clear and have good photos. The on-line video is even more helpful. I enjoyed installing the hitch--I would recommend this product to others. 103609

I just installed an etrailer hitch on a 2014 Honda CR-V. I spent around an hour from start to finish, including the time I spent rounding up the tools I needed and washing up afterwards. The hitch was a perfect fit and I was able to install it by myself, though I do have a small automotive floor jack that I used to position the hitch in place while I put the bolts in. I also used a slight variation/simplification on the installation instructions that others have discussed on this site for the Honda CR-V. I cut the hole in the plastic underbody panel with the panel in place using a utility knife. After marking the panel with a sharpie I did drill small holes at the four corners of the piece to be cut out but this probably was not necessary. The underbody panel is soft enough, and the location of the rectangle needing removal is aligned with the embossed ribs in the panel, so that cutting the hole with a utility knife requires very little effort and is easily done with the panel on the car. Also, for the 2014 CR-V ( AWD EX trim with 17" wheels) there is plenty of clearance with the vehicle on the ground so that it wasn't even necessary to jack up the rear (but I don't mind lying on my back). I used a foot or so of scrap 2x10 lumber on the top of my floor jack to support the hitch while I jacked it into position. I did squirt some PB blaster on the exhaust hangers but didn't need any specialized tool to remove the rubber isolators (just a big screw driver and pry bar). I also saved the piece of plastic cut from the underbody panel, trimmed it a bit, then taped it back in place using strips of Gorilla tape just to deter road muck from splashing in thru the cutout. In retrospect I think I could have just cut three of the four sides of the cutout, then wedged the flap down and held it out of the way with some tape to gain access to the driver side frame rail. Then the flap could have been trimmed and moved back into position and then either Gorilla taped or even held in place with a piece of thin metal (like a coffee can lid) or plastic and some sheet metal screws (and maybe some Gorilla glue). If someone does try this then the side not cut must be on the outside (side away from the car's center). I will be using this primarily for a hitch mounted bike rack. This hitch is probably overkill for this application but it is such a fine piece of craftsmanship and so reasonably priced that I cannot fathom using any other hitch now. 142671

Installation was very easy. Hardest part was the rubber hangers on the muffler. Decided to cut the rear panel with a rotozip instead of removing it, so I took my time measuring. I used a floor jack with a piece of wood and had my wife stabilize it. After cutting the hole, everything went smoothly. Place the bolts, tighten and torque them and your done. The videos were really helpful. Total time about 1 hour. Price and service from E-Trailer were outstanding. 94361





Comments

I removed the appearance panel, so that I would not slip and cut any wires above it that I could not see-now that I have done it that way, I discovered there is nothing to injure if you cut the piece in place on the car....the landmarks are obvious for marking the cut out, and a sheet rock knife does a quick easy cutout...my muffler hangers came off with moderate encouragement, and slipped back on with a squirt of silicone spray...all in all, a quick and easy install...oh, if you do it with one person, it is easiest to have a floor jack to raise and hold the hitch in place while you mount the bolts...etrailer is a great company to do business with....Mel

I installed this myself on my 2013 Honda CRV, lying on my back on the driveway, no jackstands or lifts. A thin man can lift the hitch and position it on his chest, without too much trouble, and bolt it on. A fifteen minute task, if you leave off Honda's plastic underbody cover. If you elect to cut a hole in the cover and replace it, the fiddling will add considerable time to your job. The diagram which comes with the hitch is better than the copy online to which the etrailer Q&A directs you: once you figure out the diagram, and follow the instruction's admonition to use the cover's ribs as a guide for cutting, that task is straight forward. There is also some sound deadening fabric on the cover which needs to be cut. I used a Dremel tool with cutoff wheel to cut the plastic cover, and scissors works for the fabric. Reinstalling the plastic cover isn't too hard, but takes some fiddling to line everything up to get the fasteners back in. You must have an extension for your socket wrench to tighten the bolts on the hitch, if you replace the plastic cover; I had to buy a ten inch extension. If you don't replace the cover, you don't need the longer extension, and I could have used the short extension which is in my Craftsman metric wrench set. In short, replacing the cover complicates the job. I don't know if there would be any appreciable increased cabin noise without the cover. 81953

Very good product. Installed CURT 13119 hitch on my new 2013 Honda CRV. Couple of suggestions: a.) this install is not possible for one person to accomplish, unless you're a super hero who has an extra arm and hand b.) a lift is highly recommended although we installed FLAT on the garage floor. c.) suggest you purchase an exhaust rubber support bracket removal pliers (Lisle at $19.95 is a good buy) OR first make sure your dealer has the pair of rubber hangers for your make and model and then simply cut the old ones off and replace them with new rubber hangers. A pair of new rubber hangers for my car cost me $7.95. d.) If you're installing on a new Honda CRV which has a plastic cover, you DON'T need a rotary tool as a simple utility knife will do just fine in trimming the plastic cover. 96588

Why do you need to remove the underbody panel to cut the hole? If its plastic, and you just need a rectangular hole to reach the bolt holes cant you cut the hole with the panel in place?

comment by: Jerry - 05/15/2014

You can, but the instructions indicate that the panel should be removed, so that is what we advise. This most likely to make sure that there is no dammage to the panel itself, and because it is much safer to trim the panel while laid out and not in place under the vehicle.

I just did this install on my CR-V and cut the hole in the panel with a utility knife while the panel was in place. I used a sharpie to outline the rectangle and did drill holes at the 4 corners to get the cuts started but the plastic is pretty soft and cuts easily with a utility knife I used one that allows you to control how much blade is exposed since a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of blade is all you need.

This is a very good product. Nice design, well manufactured, and good paint job. However, the hole dimensions are slightly off. Could only get 3 out of 4 bolts into the frame. Had to remove passenger-side bolts and u-bolt to get both driver-side bolts to go in. Then had to pull mount wicked hard to get 4th passenger-side bolt into place. They need to make the slots larger or put better quality practices into their manufacturing process so customers don't get stuck with the issue. Video installation instructions very good. I had to buy a threading tap and carefully removed the dirt caked into the ps vehicle holes - couldn't find a brush like the one shown in video. This looked like the best trailer hitch out there compared to the other brands. 142222

I ordered the Curt hitch for our 2012 Honda CRV from etrailer. Easy ordering process. Thorough and professional. It arrived just in time for our planned trip. The Curt hitch is a very high quality product. Installation was fairly easy. Tip: I left the black under pan valence in place. Measured and cut the rectangular hole per instructions using a Dremel. That saved time and effort. Removing the rubber exhaust hangers was probably the hardest part until I discovered they can be pushed off with gloved hands after spraying with WD-40. They went back on easily by hand. I used a floor jack to position the hitch and align the bolts. A perfect fit and quite easy for a one man job! 132107

The hitch went onto my new CRV with no problems. The instructional video was very well done and helpful. It is definitely a two man job to lift and hold it in position while starting the 4 main fasteners. It is well designed to interface with the Honda frame and components and seems to be quite sturdy. The fit and finish of the hitch are very good quality. I look forward to using the hitch to support a rear mounting bike rack 52242

I'm 63, and I just installed this hitch in 45 minutes. I did have my son help me hold it up to insert the fasteners, but if you have a floor jack, this can be done alone in a snap, in the driveway, with no vehicle lifting. The fit is perfect, instructions were top notch; there were no surprises. I did follow others' suggestions to just cut the sound panel in place, and it cuts like butter with a utility knife, then just trim the fiberglass with a scissors; this procedure will save you a lot of work, and the cutout location per the instructions was exact. Great company, which says a lot nowadays. Thanks, etrailer. 130080

This is my second purchase from Etrailer. Both times my hitch arrived quickly and was the best price I could find anywhere. This time however I ordered a CURT hitch. Although it took longer for me to install because of a plastic shield Honda now has in their CR-V vehicles it still was easy to mount. CURT hitch is very well made and looks terrific on my new 2012 CR-V. I'm very happy with both CURT and Etrailer. 38937

Installation wasn't too terrible, that dang "appearance panel" was really the only challenge, they didn't make it easy to remove/replace! Product itself had clear instructions, seems very sturdy and well designed. The curve of the rounded bars matches the style of the back end pretty well, and the receiver itself blends well and doesn't look out of place. 46697

Got this hitch for my 2012 Honda CR-V. Heavy duty hitch, great fit bolted right on. The directions for installing were very good. I also viewed the installation video on etrailer. The video had you trimming the appearance panel on the CR-V and reinstalling with the hitch. The directions that came with the hitch had you trim the appearance panel then reinstalling that panel then install the hitch. I would recommend the latter as the appearance panel is a bit clumsy to get back in place. I found it easier to do the panel first then the hitch. 53993

Hitch was delivered surprisingly fast. I received it in two days after being quoted 3-5 business days. Installation went rather well, however the diagram to cut the underbody panel was a bit off. The "u-bolt" didn't fit the pre-drilled holes on the hitch. Luckily I have a bench vise which I used to compress the u-bolt to align with the holes. This hitch is a bit difficult to install without a lift and by yourself, but I managed. I would suggest this to anyone in the market for a high quality and easy to instal hitch. 98250

I bought a new car and wanted to make sure that my bike or rack never touches the car. I was going to buy a hitch directly from the dealer just to have it over and done with. Honda did not offer the appropriate size hitch for my rack so I called my mechanic. He recommended your website and I had the hitch sent directly to my mechanic for installation. The cost including labor was half the price of a car dealer hitch. The hitch arrive in a timely manner and it is all set to go. Haven't attached the bike rack yet. 141094

Good quality, reasonable price, very fast shipping. Honda wanted $600 for a factory hitch, this one was $150. Did it by myself using a floor jack with a piece of wood on it to hold things in place. Also hooked up the Curt trailer light pigtail. Removing and replacing the plastic body panels to get to the hookups was a real pain. All problems were because it was a new Honda CRV and they love plastic body parts in the way of everything. I would definitely recommend Etrailer and will do business with them again. 60939

The product is robust and installation wasn't too bad. I removed the plastic cover and cut it on the ground. It wasn't that painful, but added more time to the job. If I were to do another, I would cut it while it was still attached. One tip, I did not completely remove the plastic. I created a flap by cutting it on 3 sides, which allowed me to put it back in place when I was done. I also did a similar thing with my wiring harness. I cut a trap door where I store the wiring. 83310

Installed the new hitch without any problems at all. Infact I didn't remove the cover. We just measured the part that needed to be cut out and used a dremel to cut the cover. It only took 20 minutes to install. We didn't need to remove all the bolts and an snap plugs which can easily break if you don't have the right tool to remove them. Very happy with the look and am loooking forward to doing more business with you in the future. I would recommend your products to others 79595

We bought the Curt C13119 class III 2'' receiver and C56158 wiring harness to install on our '13 Honda CRV. We have a Curt receiver on one of our other vehicles and are very happy with it. I installed that one but did not install the new one. I took it to a local body shop that we deal with and for $50 they removed the bottom cover, measured and cut it to accommodate the receiver and installed the wiring harness. We were pleased to say the least. And I did say $50 121767

Build and finish were excellent. I used the online video and the instructions enclosed. The only area of concern was the area behind the drivers side rear wheel. Nothing to do with the hitch. I probably disassembled more than necessary so that area went together slower. Time was about 2 1/2 hours. I put the rear tires on blocks to give me more room to work. I would definitely buy from etrailer again. Shipping was fast and and excellent company to order from. 40811

Although there is a faring involved and some cutting of it, this installation was made much easier by the Etrailers great install video, good manufacturers instructions, a rotary tool and a floor jack. Like the wiring harness I also installed, removing, modifying and re-installing the faring took the longest. Just returned from my first trailer haul and nothing fell off, so I must've followed them pretty well. 126893

Product was excellent.

A great product at a terrific price. Everything went just as the instructions stated except on my all wheel drive model I found an insulating pad on the inside of the rear underbody panel. No problem, I just had to make the same cutout as the plastic panel. Once I had that done I used some black Gorilla tape to seal up the exposed edges of the insulation. It went back together perfectly. 75297

A great hitch at a great price. The mechanic that installed the hitch for it said that the Curt hitch was first class and the price was very competitive. Customer service at etrailer was very professional. I was notified that it was available and when it was shipped and included info about how to track the shipment. It was delievered in good condiction and right oin schedule. 56538

Excellent hitch. Not too bad to install. Dealing with the trim panel under the car was the hardest part. Instructions tell you to remove the panel to cut it. It would have been easeir to leave it attached to the car and make the cut. If not for that panel, it would be a ten-minute job. 55530

Absolutely agree. Would have looked better too if kept attached like a flap.

We've actually had the same thought in the shop. We think the instructions are written as they are to make sure no damage happens to the vehicle during the panel trim process. It can also be safer trimming the hole with the panel laid out, rather than laying underneath the vehicle upside down.

Good service & quick delivery. Package arrived in a good, strong carton box, no damage. The installation took me 4hrs, i used hydraulic & jack stands to lift the car, it's easier to work when you have more space under the car, hardest part is to get the exhaust out, use Wd40. It helps to use hydraulic jack to lift hitch up because i'm one man crew 41180

Curt C13119. This is the third time I have ordered from Etrailer. Very good service. I just put the hitch on my 2013 Honda CRV. It went on very well. I cut the appearance panel on the car with a Dremel tool instead of taking it off. That seemed to be the easiest way for me. I am 66 years old and had no problem with the installation. Thanks Terry 85373

Very good instructions and easy install. It is best if you have an extra person with you to help. I installed on a 2014 Honda CRV with no problems. The directions to trim the appearance panel were very accurate. I used a oscillating multi tool with wood metal blade and it cut the plastic panel very well. 106106

This is the second hitch and really like both of them. One for Honda CR-V 2011. One for Honda CR-V 2014. Note. on the 2014 you can save yourself some work by not removing the panel. Just cut the panel while on the car. This is how I did it and it worked very well. 124552

  • We have had a chance to install the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13119, on a 2012 Honda CR-V so I attached a link to the installation video for you to check out. I also attached a picture from the installation instructions for you to check out as well. You may also be interested in the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75742.

It might be a good idea to use one though if you are loading a bike rack or cargo carrier close to the tongue weight capacity of the hitch, vehicle or bike rack/cargo carrier, whichever is rated lowest Curt requires the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for any non-trailer loads such as a bike rack or cargo carrier.

For the 2012 Honda CR-V the Curt hitch, # C13119, requires a support strap for all non-trailer loads for manufacturer warranty requirements.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda CR-V LX AWD
  • The tongue weight figure you referenced, 150 pounds, is correct if the hitch or owners manual states the max tongue weight is 10 percent of 1,500 pounds. The vehicle tongue weight capacity is what you will need to go by, even if the hitch is rated higher. In this case, if the hitches you are interested both exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle, there is no advantage to going with the higher of the two. When you are calculating how much weight is on the hitch you would...
