Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Mazda 6 - Curt

Today on our 2014 Mazda 6 we're going to be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Part Number C11356. Here's what our hitch looks like installed on our vehicle. Now we'll go ahead and give you a couple measurements in helping you choose some accessories for you hitch, such as a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper is approximately 6 inches. From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground is approximately 11 inches. Before we begin our installation, let's go over some of the tools we'll be using to install our hitch today.

We'll need a 3/4 inch socket, a ratchet, a long extension is helpful, but not necessary and a torque wrench. Now let's go ahead and install our hitch. Let's first go ahead and point out our mounting locations. There's a total of 4 mounting locations, 2 on each side. We'll begin over here on the passenger side. There's one here as well as right here.

Over here on the driver's side you will be using this location here and here. Let's point out the hardware that we'll be using to secure our hitch. It will be the same hardware used in all 4 mounting locations. We'll be using a 1/2 inch carriage bolt, square hole spacer block. We'll use the fish wire or pull wire that looks like this, to pull the carriage bolt and spacer block in place. Finally we'll put a flange nut on it.

The access hole is on the same location on both the driver and the passenger side, again we'll be using the same hardware at all 4 mounting locations. Now we're ready to take our fish wire or bolt leader, we'll take the coiled end, we'll go through the mounting location. Once we pull the coiled end out of the access hole, we'll slide the square holed spacer block on, followed by threading on the carriage bolt. We'll then push the 2 items up through the access hole and pull it down into the location. We'll go ahead then and repeat this same process at the other 3 mounting locations. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you raise the hitch up into position.

With the hitch raised up into position, we can go ahead and install the flange nuts loosely in each of the 4 mounting locations. Once all the hardware is installed we can go ahead and tighten it down. To tighten down the hardware we're using a 3/4 inch socket. Then torque it to the manufacturers specifications. That'll do it for the installation of the Curt Trailer Hitch Part Number C11356 as installed here on our 2014 Mazda 6. .

Just installed this hitch receiver on my 2014 Mazda 6 without any problems. My first time installing a receiver. Took about 45 minutes taking my time and chatting with a buddy. Hitch build quality is good. Holes lined up on the frame rails perfectly. All parts were included in the package, and instructions were pretty good. I do feel like the receiver is a bit exposed and could probably be tucked in a bit tighter into the vehicle (but we're talking 1/2" here at most). That said, the receiver is NOT the lowest point on the underside of the car so I don't expect any significant impact on MPG from wind drag, if any at all. Tip for DIY installers: You use fishwire to get 4 spacers/bolts into the frame and aligned in their respective holes. On each frame rail (left and right), there are 4 holes, all of which are shown in the instructions. 2 middle holes are clearly for the bolts, and I assumed the other 2 were the access holes for fishwiring the spacers/bolts into place (i.e. one nearest each bolt hole). This is NOT the case. You only use 3 holes total: 2 middle for the bolts, and only the rear-most (towards rear of vehicle) hole is used as the access hole for BOTH bolts. The front-most hole is not used at all in the process. The spacer will fit through the front hole but not the bolt. This cost me about 10 minutes on the install because it's virtually impossible to remove the spacer once in place. I got everything sorted out in the end but just wanted to mention that as it's not explicitly clear from the instructions (well, it wasn't to me). If I can figure out how to upload some photos I'll do so later. 75214


Comments

Thanks for the good comment. Wasnt sure it would fit, but I see from the pic in the above review and your comments, it really works. Are you planning lots of towing or just bikes etc?

Per the Owners Manual, the 2014 Mazda 6 should not be used to tow any trailer.

I came within hours of ordering a roof rack for my new 2016 Mazda 6. I had used one for over 10 years on 3 different Mazda's in the past and although the transport was bombproof there was a lot going on up there, towers, crossbars, faring, bike trays and excessive wind noise, although i realize that the cross bars are now more aero designed. My bike shop recommended a Curt Trailer Hitch and then attaching a tray carrier to that. I did some research and decided to go this route. I ordered the Curt Hitch on a Tuesday and it was on my car by Friday of the same week and I have been carrying my bike with the carrier tray I attached ever since. This option worked out for me very well, i am very pleased. etrailer was very helpful and the install was pretty basic with no issues. 283548

The Curt hitch was very easy to install. It took about 20 minutes, and as a previous reviewer noted, the car doesn't need to be raised to install the hitch. The hitch is barely noticeable and works well with the old Swagman XC2. 320709

I was able to install this myself, in my driveway. I have to say little things make a difference. E-Trailer included 4 fish wires with the hitch and that saved me. Holding the hitch by yourself and getting it in place while lining up the holes, was impossible, but because I had 4 wires I didn't have to retrieve hardware from the frame. One pull on the wire and the bolts were back in place. (2016 Mazda 6) 209704

It installed very quickly. Took about 30-40 minutes, and I hadn't done one of these before. If I did it again, I could probably install one in 10-15 minutes, now that I know what I'm doing...it really is that easy. It has held up just fine, quality wise. I haul a 4x8 utility trailer or a pair of jetskis and they both do great with the car and setup. 243990

Recieved Hitch for our 2015 Mazda 6 Grand Touring on time and in excellent condition. The Hitch is well built and will meet all my needs. It was installed in less than 30 minutes with no difficulty. I used the e-trailer video for instructions. Everything fit as shown in the video or on the printed instructions. Great product!!!! 271853

The trailer is great, but the pieces did not fit 100% my mazda 6 according to the drawings in the instructions. In particular, I'm talking about the metal plates that need to go inside the bottom part of the car together with the screws. They are supposed to go horizontal but they don't fit that way. Everything else was good. 215119

Perfect fit for my 2015 Mazda6. Watched the associated video and installed in less then 30-minutes, just like they say. My 10-year old enjoyed helping lift the hitch into place and tightening the bolts. Great price, fast delivery, quality construction, a perfect fit, and good father-son time.. What more could I ask for! 189536

Great quality hitch and only took 30 minutes to install on my Mazda6. Mazda makes it easy though because there are 4 holes in the unibody for this hitch to simply bolt to. Hardware supplied with hitch was high grade and very good quality. 224450

  • Choosing Hitch Thats Most Concealed for 2015 Mazda 5
  • I've created a photo for you showing all three hitches next to each other. Both hitches share a very similar design, have the same weight capacities and would install in the same manner. The crossbar and receiver opening of all three hitches would be visible below the rear bumper fascia of the 2015 Mazda 6. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite 24908. If you were planning on doing some light duty towing (after checking with your owner's manual or with Mazda to determine if your vehicle is...

  • Unable To Locate Access Holes In Frame Rail On 2016 Mazda 6 When Installing Trailer Hitch
  • I called my contact at Curt about your 2016 Mazda 6. They told me that they have not seen the Mazda 6 without the access holes used when installing the # C11356 hitch. They did say that some of the manufacturers have inserted plugs into the holes or placed tape over the hole and painted it when they painted the frame rails. You might want to check to see if there is an open end on the frame rail you can access. This would mean you need to extend the fishwire to reach that distance....

  • Both of the Class I hitches available for your 2016 Mazda 6, the Curt # C11356 and the Draw-Tite # 24908 have receiver tubes that are open at the back. This being said, the Draw-Tite hitch has a stop punched or welded into it that prevent hitch accessories meant for a Class II hitch from being slid into the receiver tube far enough for the hitch pin holes in the receiver tube and the shank of the accessory to line up. This purposely done as a safety measure. The Curt # C11356 hitch...

The Curt hitch receiver has roughly the same specs, but Curt's hitch receiver # C11356 requires a stabilizing strap under their warranty for bike racks and cargo carriers, # 18050, that most people don't like. One of the measurements you will want is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper is 6-1/4 inches. For a platform bike rack, I called...
