Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on this 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to install part number 87414 from Hidden Hitch. This is what the hitch looks like when it is installed on the vehicle. Next, we'll give you some measurements that will help you out in 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 is going to be 13 inches and from the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside edge of the bumper will be 5-3/4 inches. First thing we'll do is we'll show you where the hitch mounts up to the frame as these two existing threaded holes here. Next step is to go ahead and clean up the threaded holes.

The older the vehicle it is, the more work it will take. We're going to spray a lubricant and tube brush to help clean up the threads. In worst case scenario, if it is clogged up then you have to use the thread cap to clean them up. And the tube brush we're using is part number 814092. At this point, we can go ahead and start installing the hitch.

Now, you definitely want an extra set of hands to help hold it up there while you install the hardware. With all our hardware installed, now we'll go ahead and tighten down the hardware and then torque it down as specified in the instructions. With all our hardware tightened down, that will finish it for our install of part number 87414 from Hidden Hitch.

I received the trailer hitch and wiring harness in the morning and leisurely installed everything in a couple of hours. The online videos were useful, and by using blocks and one scissor jack, installed the hitch myself. The wiring harness was also an easy install. No pinched fingers, no scratches and no swearing. This was my second purchase from e-trailer and the service has been excellent both times. 76635





Comments

I couldnt be happier with e-trailers service. They go out of their way to find parts, and their videos are very helpful.

The 30 min doesn't include the time to clean up the nut plate threads - I am so glad the video explained that the bolt may even seem oversized. I was convinced I would end up with a buggered bolt and nut plate or break it off, but I took my time, lots of liquid wrench, a thread chaser, and finally ran it in and out with an impact wrench (delicately). Also used a battery terminal cleaner - like the video. After that, I used a tie-down strap and held the hitch up (no helper) and got the bolts all in with no problem. The install after the treads were clean was about 15 min. Looks good, now after a rest I will try pulling the camper a little. Also while down there I say the factory electrical connectors for the wiring - so that will be my next order. etrailer will get it here in three days, just like always, I am sure. 44354

This is a high quality, heavy duty hitch. Simple bolt-on installation was straight forward, and easy. The installation videos provided by eTrailer were accurate and helpful. Shipping was fast! A++ One tech note: The older your vehicle gets (mine is a 2009) the more rust & debris you will likely have in the frame mounting holes. One of mine also had a piece of weld slag stuck in the threads. I bought a tap (~$6) to chase the threads prior to installing the hitch. The tap is 10mm by 1.25mm thread pitch. Spray the holes with WD40, guide the tap in and your threads will be clear for easy installation. 62548

This heavy, welded hitch should last for years. It fit exactly as it should on my 2009 Santa Fe and it looks good. The product was "as advertised" and installation was straightforward. Unfortunately, the Santa Fe bolt holes were a problem with severe corrosion. I saw a "tap" bolt installed in a body panel next to where the hitch was to be bolted and used it to clean the threads of the existing mounting holes. One of the holes had almost no thread at all, so while the hitch installation only took about fifteen minutes, that was after spending an hour getting the bolts to thread in. 41718

Really happy I went with etrailer for my towing needs. Ordering was a breeze and the helpful install videos were a major plus! Very happy with trailer hitch I got and install was pretty easy. The only I problem I had was the bolt holes in my 2007 Santa Fe were corroded and it took a good amount of time to get them clean. I used the battery terminal cleaner tool and A LOT of wd40 as suggested by etrailer...worked great. I ended up stripping the very last bolt so I am taking it in to get retapped but other that.....AWESOME PRODUCT and GREAT SERVICE! Thank you Etrailer. 62150

Decided to put a trailer hitch on my wife Santa Fe for when we go on vacation so we can use the cargo rack. Saw this model was a perfect fit , easy install 4 bolts and you are done. Installed it in my driveway without having to lift the car up. Took me about 30 min (did it by my self). so it took a little longer if you had 2 people it could have been quicker. 43544

I cant think of any thing else this company could have done to make this transaction any better. I was notified when the order was accepted, shipped, tracking information and finally when my hitch was delivered. Plenty of installation information in print and online videos. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have the hitch automatically installed by the time I got home. Thank you etrailer, I wish I needed another trailer hitch because I know right where to order one. I wonder if I can install one on the front of my truck..... Rick 16133

Just received my trailer hitch today from E-Trailer. It was my first ever purchase on line. The experience was so positive with etrailer that I shall shop this way many times in the future. The order entry prosess was a snap and their response that my order had been received and entered was immediate. Customer service e-mailed back within five minutes thanking me for my order and advised they had arranged earlier shipping at no expense to me. My product is exactly what was conveyed to me by etrailer. Much better than driving to the mall. 8746

Great Hitch.. great price! Got this hitch for our 2009 Sante Fe. Holes line up, its shape fits the car perfectly! A little tricky getting the bolts to thread, definitely need a second person, one to hold the hitch and one to thread the bolts. Done in less that half an hour. Got the Valley Wiring kit 30159 for the Hyundai Trailer package. Check their video out and check your Sante FE, the harness connectors are their even if you didn’t order the Trailer Package!!

Very Happy with Hitch Based on the other reviews I purchased this hitch. Looks great and a snap to install. My son bolted it in while I held it steady. PS: I have a 2009, and this model year has the wiring hookups installed even if you don't order the Trailer Package from Hyundai. I got the Valley T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Trailer Connector (30159) which plugged right into the Factory terminals behind the driver side rear wheel. No splicing required! 3398

I ordered the Hidden Hitch for my 2008 Santa Fe. Delivery was quick within 2 days. The instructional video and reviews were priceless. It took longer than the estimated 30 minutes but only because the bolt holes needed cleaning out and thanks to the reviews and instructional video I was prepared. The hitch is heavy so providing support under it while attaching to the vehicle is necessary. All in all very satisfied and glad that my hitch went on without a hitch. Thanks 38052

Trailer Hitch The Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch met my expectations. It is truly a hidden hitch. The fit was perfect but the installation took longer than expected due to the limited space available. It was difficult to get the bolts started. The electrical harness installation was easy. I followed the instructions provided by the video rather than those enclosed with the harness. There is no need to take the whole trunk bed apart. 4194

Shipping was very fast, and the online videos really helped me understand how to install it on my vehicle. It was a little hard and heavy to install the hitch receiver by myself, but I used two jack stands to hold it in place while I bolted it in. A second set of hands would have really helped. The wiring went very smooth, just like the video. I would recommend doing it yourself and purchasing through etrailer.com any time. 67592

Hitch was shipped and delivered very quickly. Only point not in the installation instructions or video is that there was a Tie Down Bracket on the passenger side frame that had to be removed. The muffler must be dropped and the heat shield removed to access the bolt which goes horizontally through the frame rail. Other than that, installation was very simple. 16401

  • None of the trailer hitches for the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe will fit the 2009 Santa Fe. They require completely different hitch designs and the measurements are all different as well. I strongly advise not to install a 2011 hitch on a 2009. But to answer your question, the 2009 also takes M10 bolts. The issue is not that the bolts are too big, it is that the weld nut threads in the frame of the vehicle are packed with corrosion and road grime. They have to be cleaned out before a bolt...

  • How to Remove and Replace Broken Weldnuts for Trailer Hitch Install
  • Broken weldnuts can be rather annoying when trying to install a hitch. It's a fairly common problem that we see and because of that we made an FAQ video on how to address this problem. Check out the video I attached to the right to see it. You will need a bolt leader like part # 80101-1 as well.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75776 that you referenced would not fit your 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. The design of the hitch is very different from what is confirmed to fit your vehicle so it would not work for you. For a hitch for you vehicle I would recommend the Hidden Hitch part # 87414, only thing is that it is not rated for weight distribution. It does have a 3,500 lb trailer capacity and a 525 lb tongue weight capacity. For trailer wiring you would want the Tow Ready wiring harness...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • A trunk-mounted bike rack can carry three bikes, at most. The Thule Raceway 3 Bike Rack, part # TH9003 is one of our best selling trunk mount racks. The Raceway uses an innovative ratcheting cable mounting system that eliminates the awkward straps and buckles used by other racks. The cable system allows the rack to be installed or removed in seconds. The Yakima KingJoe you referenced is also available in a 3 bike model, part # Y02625. Although not as easy to install or remove as the Raceway,...

  • Hidden Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe Carrying a Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack
  • I would recommend you get a Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87414 for your 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe. This hitch would work very well on your vehicle with a Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # TH990XT. I attached an installation video for the hitch as well as installation instructions for you to check out also. I also attached a review video and installation instructions for the # TH990XT for you to check out.

  • How to Retap Stripped Frame Weld Nuts When Installing a Trailer Hitch
  • Your best option is to re-tap the threads, if you take your time and follow the tapping directions carefully you should be able to mount your hitch on your 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe in no time. I have also included a link to a video that shows how you can make your own thread tap. First, you will want to select a tap that is slightly bigger than the M10x1.25 bolts that you originally tried to install in your Santa Fe. You will also want to buy a new bolt that is the same size of the tap...
