I can't work on cars as much as I used to, (getting old) but this hitch was in and completed in about 45 minutes. The only help I needed was the wife helped me lift it up into place holding one end up for a couple minutes with the guide wires through the holes in the hitch while I put one nut on my side. Then she left as I grabbed the side she lifted and stuck another loose nut on. It is best to leave the pull/guide wires on the bolts when lifting it up to prevent losing a bolt into the frame channel. They give you 4 pull guide wires just so you can do that. The help isn't for the weight but more so to make it easier to put the guide wires through the hitch holes as you raise it up into place. For one person it would be awkward. One thing is the directions. If not looked at carefully one might place the rectangular thick steel washers on the outside of the channel. Note that those washers are actually backing and strengthening plates for the frame channel and also keep the bolt from turning while tightening the nut and go """inside the channel""". Using the pull wires feed them through the access hole first before the bolt and they go in fairly easy. The bolt will pull back into them and through the frame fastening holes without a hitch. (not to use a pun here) That said installation was a breeze 71314

Very easy install. Did it myself in about 20 minutes in the driveway without lifting the car. The only dislike is having to remove a part from the car. I do not think it will hurt the car but the lower bumper does feel floppier now. The hitch appears to be good quality and looks as good on the car as a hitch can. I would buy again.85654

The fit couldn't have been any better. The installation was simple and straight forward. It took me about 15 minutes but I am an aircraft mechanic. If I had any complaint it would be that you have to remove the lower bumper aero shield. Not a big deal but I didn't know that I was going to have to remove it for the install. Overall a very nice receiver.79270

I am still waiting for my new car to arrive so I have not installed the hitch yet. I did open the box and inspect the hitch which looks to be in excellent shape and the wiring I ordered was taped to the hitch bar. Everything arrived quickly and in good shape. I was impressed on how quickly I received the hitch since it was not in stock. 63820

The instructions state that you have to remove the rear facia to install and use the hitch; however, I saw no reason to do so. The hitch installs fine and works fine without removing anything.107527

Fit the 2013 Fusion perfect. Easy installation and great instruction booklet, I did it myself in about half hour but with an extra set of hands would have been even faster.82514

Installing went swift especially when you have done it many times before.81242
