Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 Lincoln MKZ - Curt

Today on this 2013 Lincoln MKZ we're going to install part number C12091 from Curt. This is what the hitch looks like when it's installed on the car. Next we'll give you some measurements that'll help you out in selecting some accessories such as a cargo carrier or a bicycle rack. From the center of the hitch pin opening to the very edge of the bumper is about 6 3/8". From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground will be about 10 1/2". Now we'll go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed. First thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the lower body fascia.

There'll be 6 screws in the bottom edge of the bumper cover, and there'll be 4 on the inside we have to remove. We're also going to remove 4 plastic clips. Sometimes it helps to take these clips off to have the plastic loosen up a little bit more. It makes it easier to remove the fascia. This fascia piece will not be reinstalled since the hitch takes up too much room.

Once the fascia is removed, we'll go ahead and reinstall the plastic fasteners. Next we'll go ahead and show where the hitch mounts up. There's 2 holes on each side of the frame that the hitch hardware will go into. Before we install our hardware, we'll go ahead and show you how it works with the hitch while the hitch is off. One of the carriage bolts and the blocks will be fish wired from the outside to the inside. Then when the hitch is in place, there'll be a flange nut on the very bottom.

This hardware will be the same going all the way around the hitch. Now we'll go ahead and install our hardware first. We'll take our bolt leader, which comes with the kit, and run it through the hole we're going to use and then out our access hole which will be located off to the side. We'll thread in our block, and then we'll go ahead and push it into the frame. Next we'll thread on our bolt and push it in as well. Then slowly pull it out the hole we're going to use.

Repeat the same process for our next hole. We're done with our passenger side. We'll go ahead and repeat the same process over on our driver side. Our hardware is installed. Now we can go ahead and put the hitch in position. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help pull up the hitch while you install the flange nuts in the bottom. We'll slowly push the hitch up and make sure we don't push the bolts into your frame. Then loosen these ball flange nuts. Now we'll go ahead and snug down the bolts. At this point you may want to take a step back and make sure that the hitch is centered before you tighten it down for good. Once you're satisfied with the placement, we'll go ahead and torque down the bolts as specified in the instructions. With that, that'll finish it for our install of part number C12091 from Curt on our 2013 Lincoln MKZ. .

This hitch arrived quickly and communication with e-trailer has been great. Compared with installations that involve drilling holes, I'm sure this was an easy install. But I did have a lot more trouble than the experts in the videos did largely because I did not have the proper tools and I had to make 3 different trips to the hardware over three days and buy several things to get the install done. The Install: ========= The removal of the under-body panel was quick and easy. I stored it away and if I need it in the future, I am confident I could re-install it (if the hitch was ever removed). Getting the carriage nut, block, and fish hook on the frame was also pretty straightforward. I kept all 4 of the fish hooks in place because I did not have any help for the install and I was afraid I would knock the carriage bolts back into the chassis (which I did so I was glad the fish hooks were all still attached). What was not clear from the video (and took a few minutes to figure out due to very limited visibility when laying down under the car) was that the bottom few wraps of the fish hook need to be unwound to get the nut onto the carriage bolt. To be clear, the fish hook sort of screws onto the carriage bolt so with the the fish hook taking space on the screw part of the carriage bolt, I could not get the nut started. When I unwrapped the bottom couple of winds of the fish hook from the bolt, I could then start the nut while still using the fish hook to 'grab' the carriage bolt and pull it down to give me some tension to get the nut on the bolt. Then once the nut was attached and prevented the carriage bolt from going back into the frame, I could unwind the rest of the fish hook and hand-tighten the nuts onto all four carriage bolts. At this point, the hitch is attached to the car, but is not tightened down. The nut on the carriage bolt is 3/4 of an inch and I found that I did not have a 3/4 inch socket. I also found that the instructions said to torque the nuts to the carriage bolts to 110 foot pounds. I did not own a torque wrench. The ones I saw on-line that would fit my 3/8 inch sockets could not torque to 80 foot pounds. Only the 1/2 inch torque wrenches seemed to allow 110 foot pounds. Also in my local Home Depot and Harbor Freight, I only saw torque wrenches that were 1/2 inch. So I bought a half-inch torque wrench and also a half-inch socket set to be able to tighten the carriage bolts to the nuts. I suggest not buying a 1/2 inch torque wrench less than 18 inches long. When I tried a smaller one I could not pull hard enough to get to 110 foot pounds. With an 18 inch torque wrench this worked fine (not easy but doable). I expect a 24 inch torque wrench would have been much easier (but also more expensive). My last problem was the right front carriage bolt and nut are obscured by the muffler exhaust port. When I went back and watched the install video again, I noticed that the electric drill used in the video to tighten the sockets was using an extension for this last bolt to get around the muffler when no extension was present for tightening down the other three nuts. I was not using an electric drill and I did not have the correct piece to extend the socket with my torque wrench so I went back to the hardware store and picked up a universal adapter (that would let me get to the nut at an angle) and a socket extension. Even with this, it took me a while to figure out how to get everything in place and be able to pull with enough force to reach 110 foot pounds or torque. Etrailer is great and (after a few days of use) the Curt hitch seems very strong and secure. But I do wish the detail of the fishhook getting in the way of screwing the nut onto the carriage bolt had been mentioned in the video and I do wish the video had been a little more clear on the difficulty of torquing the carriage bolt above muffler exhaust. The Etrailer install videos are the best around that I have seen. I just think that when you are professionals with the ability to lift the car up for easy access, and you already have the right tools and know what you are doing, it does make the install look simpler than it is. If you already have the tools and generally know what you are doing, this may require no new tools. But in my case, a super-cheap 1/2 inch torque wrench was still $30 plus another $20 or so for sockets, socket extensions, and adapters. And I think you could easily spend twice this or more to buy quality tools instead of what I purchased. I will buy from Etrailer next time I need a hitch. But if you don't already have the tools, you may want to ask a local shop (that has already purchased the right tools) to give you a quote on installing your Etrailer hitch since you will likely need a minimum of $50 in tools to do the work yourself. Thanks Etrailer. I appreciate your site and service. 156075

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


How was it removing the underbody panel? Im apprehensive about permanently removing something from a brand new vehicle. Is it noticeable visually? Any road noiseother issue? Just looking for some reassurance that removing this panel has no effect aesthetically or otherwise. Thanks!

I recently installed the Curt hitch receiver #C12091 on my 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium. As Curt's instructions noted, the installation was very simple. The removal of the rear air deflector was very easy and the receiver aligns perfectly with the existing holes in the frame rail. The fishwire is an ingenious method of threading the bolt through the spacer, all within the frame rail. As noted by another reviewer, it's easy to misunderstand the instruction's drawing as they somewhat depict the spacer being sandwiched between the hitch receiver and frame rail -- rather, you must fish the spacer inside of the frame rail, with the bolt. Be sure to read the dialogue entitled "FISHWIRE TECHNIQUE" on instruction page four. Other than the product itself, my experience was great. Their price was very compeittive, communication through the sales and shipping process were excellent, they were quick to ship, and I received the hitch receiver without issue. 137434

Delivered as expected. I ordered it late Friday night and it arrived in Arizona the next Wednesday. It might have arrived Tuesday but there was a holiday that Monday. The install was just as the website video explained. Very easy with two people. My vehicle is a 2014 Ford Fusion SE and the bike rack is a Thule Vertex 2 (9028.) 171121

Great purchase experience. The ordering website was easy, the item arrived timely, it was packaged properly and quality made. Installation was as described and the instructions and videos were a big help and accurate. It took me about 40 mins to install without any issues, drilling or surprises. Could have been less if I had more room in the garage to work - nothing to do with the hitch. Highly recommend! 150210

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

Excellent service. Had a question about installation prior to ordering. Got a quick and accurate answer. Order shipped promptly, arrived undamaged. Installation on my 2014 Ford Fusion was simple, did not even need to raise car to install. Perfect fit, took less than an hour. Looks good too, well constructed. Overall, extremely satisfied. 128228

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

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

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid
  • Curt does not exclude the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid from the fits of trailer hitch C12091. However, you might want to consider a trunk mount bike rack, see link. Trunk mount racks will have a lower cost than a trailer hitch and hitch mount bike rack. You will be able to carry up to 3 bikes on some models and trunk mount bike racks can fit multiple vehicles. When using a trunk mount rack you will want to make sure that the rack and vehicle are clean where they contact each other. If...

  • Where Do the Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitches Install on a 2013 Ford Fusion
  • After looking over the installation instructions for Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24897 and Curt hitch # C12091 it looks to me like they install in the same place. On the frame of the 2013 Ford Fusion the very last hole at the rear of the vehicle is left alone and there is a more elongated hole forward of it that is the rear most attachment point for both hitches. You can see it in the installation instructions which I have linked to the right for both hitches. If you are looking to do...

  • Fit of Curt Class II Receiver Hitch # C12091 on 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid
  • The Curt Class II receiver you referred to, part # C12091 is indeed compatible with the Hybrid model of the 2014 Ford Fusion. The # C12091 would be an excellent choice. The hitch would make a fine attachment point for a bike rack or other hitch mounted accessory, but keep in mind that Ford does not recommend towing with the Fusion Hybrid.

This is the only Class II trailer hitch available for your Fusion which means it is the only hitch that can handle 4 bikes. The other hitches are Class I hitches and are limited to 2 bikes.

  • Is there Any Removal or Trimming of Any Parts on a 2013 Ford Fusion to Install Trailer Hitch C12091

No other parts need to be permanently removed and there is no drilling required. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

  • It is not recommended to reinstall the lower body fascia with the Curt Class II Trailer Hitch, # C12091, on your 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium because of the final position of the hitch once it is installed. It may be possible to mount the fascia with the hitch installed, but you will have to do extensive trimming to make it fit with the hitch.

  • Will the Swagman XTC-4 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a Class II Hitch on a 2013 Ford Fusion
  • You can use the Swagman XTC4, # S64665, with an adapter but doing so reduces the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. That would mean that the 350 pound tongue weight capacity of the hitch would be reduced to 175 pounds and the adapter would be putting a lot of extra torque on the receiver. Based on all of this I strongly advise against this particular set up. You also have to consider the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle. If it is lower than 350 pounds then you have...

  • The Curt trailer hitch for your 2014 Ford Fusion Energi, # C12091, is a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The MaxxTow cargo carrier is designed to fit 2 inch hitches so it will not work. I recommend Pro Series carrier # 6500. It will fit the hitch and your Fusion.

In order to carry two bikes on your Fusion, I recommend going with a hitch mounted bike rack like the Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack, # Y02457.

  • Availability of a 2-Inch Hitch for 2014 Ford Fusion S Hybrid for Transporting a Wheelchair
  • You are correct that all of the hitches we currently have available for the 2014 Ford Fusion have a 1-1/4-inch receiver opening, although we do have both Class I and Class II options. Class II hitch # C12091 from Curt offers a 350-lb tongue weight; this is the highest capacity hitch we offer for your car. A hitch with a 350-lb tongue weight may not be up to the task of handling the weight of a wheel chair and the weight of the carrier that holds it. (You should also check the vehicle's...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid to Carry an Italian Ice Cart
  • For a trailer hitch for your Fusion you can use # C12091. This is a Class II trailer hitch and it has a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds. You will need to check your owners manual to determine if a trailer hitch can be installed and if so what the tongue weight capacity is. I have linked the hitch instructions for you. The only 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch carrier we have that also has a ramp is # RHWC1114 like you have found. However, you may be able to use a carrier without a ramp...

  • Friction Sway Control Setup Recommendation for Use with a Class II Hitch
  • The best option you have would be to get the Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26005 and install it on a Class II ball mount for use with a friction sway control system like the part # 83660. I attached a link to a page that has all of the Class II ball mounts we offer. Using the above mentioned parts would work well with your Curt Hitch part # C12091.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid
  • I would recommend you go with a Class II hitch over a Class I hitch. The capacities will be higher and more hitch accessory options will be available. For example, with a Class I hitch you can only carry up to 2 bikes, whereas with a Class II you can carry up to 4. I attached a help article that covers the differences between hitch classes for you to check out as well. For a hitch I would recommend the Curt Hitch part # C12091. This is a Class II hitch that would work well towing a trailer...

  • Carrying a Wheel Chair on a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid Using a Carrier that Fits a 2 Inch Hitch
  • Since there are no 2 inch trailer hitches for the 2014 Ford Fusion the only way you would be able to carry the wheel chair on the carrier that you have is to use an adapter, # HTAD. However, doing so will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The highest capacity hitch for your Fusion is # C12091 rated for 350 pounds tongue weight. By using the adapter that capacity is reduced to 175 pounds. So the combined weight of the carrier and the wheel chair would...

  • What is the Best Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Lincoln MKZ
  • Trailer hitch # 36477 fits 2009 to 2013 Lincoln MKS models but not the 2014 MKZ. For a 2014 MKZ you can use trailer hitch # C12091. The lower air deflector will have to be removed to install the hitch but there is no trimming of the fascia required. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right for you. I have also included a link to a video showing an installation for you. If you plan on doing some towing the correct ball mount is # C45016. For a 1-7/8 inch ball...
