Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Honda Odyssey - Hidden Hitch

Today on our 2012 Honda Odyssey were going to install the Hidden Hitch part number 90153. This is what it will look like with our hitch installed. Now well go ahead and give you a couple of measurements that will assist you with selecting accessories for your new hitch such as a drawbar, a bike rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost point of the bumper is 5-3/4 inches. From the top of receiver tube to the ground is 11-1/2 inches. Now lets go ahead with the installation.

Our first step is actually to remove the underbody trim panel here on the drivers side. This will get removed and will not be reinstalled. To remove the underbody trim panel, well simply get inside the plastic push pin and pry out the center piece. Once we get the center piece pried out we can take a flat bladed screwdriver or if you have available a trim panel tool to remove the fastener. Now with our three plastic fasteners removed, weve got one bolt that also needs to be removed.

With the trim panel removed and set aside, well now move over to the passengers side so that we can go ahead and lower the exhaust. To lower the exhaust we need to remove the two rear tail pipe hangers. Easiest way to remove these hangers is take a little spray lubricant and spray down the metal portion of the hanger and then well remove the rubber isolator that hangs in between. As you can see, this will give us additional working room so that we can get to the weld nuts above the exhaust. The attachment points here on the drivers side, again, will be the weld nuts in the frame.

Each one of our weld nuts in the frame will need to be cleaned out before we install our hardware. To do this, well use a little spray lubricant and a 1/2-inch nylon tube brush, part number 814092 to clean out the threads of the weld nut. Theres the rear attachment point on the drivers side. Were going to go ahead and repeat the same process for the rest of the attachment points. Now were ready to go ahead and install our hitch.

Its a good idea to get extra set of hands to help you hold the hitch in place while you install your fasteners. Well be using our 12-mm bolt and conical tooth washer with the teeth of the washer facing the hitch. Well install each fastener finger tight until we get them all in place. Now with all our fasteners in place well go ahead and tighten them down. Each process we do here on the drivers side well repeat it identically on the passengers side. Now with our fasteners tightened down, well go ahead and torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. With all our fasteners torqued to specifications well go ahead and reinstall the exhaust. With all our fasteners torqued to specifications that will complete the install of our Hidden Hitch part number 90153 on our 2012 Honda Odyssey.

I backed the van up on ramps, cleaned the holes with WD40 and a round brush, slipped the hitch up over the exhaust (no need to remove from the hangers) and installed the bolts and torqued to spec. I think it took me about 10 minutes to do the hitch install. No real need to remove the tailpipe from the hangers, just need to move it to the side to get at the bolts with the ratchet and torque wrench. Very nicely made hitch! I wish I would have known the hitch comes with a rubber plug to keep the crap out, as I ordered one with it. I have 2 of them now.17918

Very easy to install. Already used it to pull a trailer to CT. Only comment I have is once I tightened the 4 bolts the hitch was in contact with the rear bumper and it pushes up on it some. No damage but over time it may chafe on the plastic bumper cover. Otherwise very satisfied with the hitch. 79134

Very easy installation. Not easy finding the 1/2" nylon tube brush, wish when buying from etrailer it would show up in the additional items you might need. Came scratched up and not due to shipping, scratches was under rap around cardboard on crossbar. This tells me it was to the packers knowledge this was sent to me this way. A little disturbing since it shows on the Van. Easier not using ramps, less lifting and slid over tail pipe without removing anything. Probably spent 40 min cleaning out one of the weld nuts on van and the rest was a 10 min job. Shipping was fast and tracking was great.38745

This item is well-made and we recieved it without any issues or problems. We are a family of 4 and needed this for a bike-rack we are getting. With our minivan not have a hitch already this was step one of our solution. We did not mount it ourselves, but had a automotive place do it for us for a nominal fee.20218

With only 4 bolts, it should be easy to install this hitch, and it is. Look at the video and you will have no difficulty. I drove the back wheels of my Ody up on some 4" high wooden ramps to get sufficient clearance to remove the rubber exhaust hangers. Spraying the rubber hangers with silicon lubricant makes removing them much easier. Since I was working by myself, I used gallon paint cans and some short pieces of 2x4 to get the two ends of the hitch held up just below the frame, so I could start the bolts on each side without having to hold up the hitch while doing it. Note that the instructions which come with the hitch call for an 18mm wrench/socket for tightening the bolts, when the actual wrench/socket required is a 19mm. The hitch looks sturdy and well made, and fits closely under the rear of the Ody. Finally, the personnel at etrailer were very quick to ship the hitch, and I got keeping me informed of the status. I am a very pleased customer, and hightly recommend etrailer.com.8014

  • Which Trailer Hitch # 90153 or # 87479 is Less Noticeable on a 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • All of the hitches for the 2007 Honda Odyssey (see link) are manufactured with basically the same construction. The only real difference is the size of the receiver opening. A 1-1/4 inch opening will be smaller and less noticeable than a 2 inch receiver opening. That being said, I would select the 2 Inch receiver opening whenever the option is available. You will not be able to tow more but you will have a much wider range of accessories to choose from, now and in the future as your needs cha
