We installed the Hidden Hitch on a 2005 Volvo V70 wagon. Overall, the installation went very well. I was pleased with the hitch design, ordering and shipping, and the installation. Most importantly, everything lined up correctly. As mentioned in other comments I read, you really need a second person to help hold the hitch while attaching to the car. In addition to the expected tools, such as the socket wrench, we used a 6” extension and a torque wrench. The extension made the installation much easier, but the torque wrench was not something I thought of in advance. When you remove the bolts on the driver’s side, the exhaust can be shifted to left which allows room to maneuver the hitch into place. This hitch is designed to fit onto the exhaust bracket, not between it and the frame, avoiding a challenge. On the right, the tow bracket must be removed and cannot be placed back over the hitch bolts with modifying the bracket. Due to the angle of the bracket, the bolt holes no longer align. I suppose this could be overcome by filing out the bolt holes to improve the alignment. To avoid overstressing the brackets holding the exhaust system, I used a scissors jack to ever so lightly lift and hold the exhaust (probably unnecessary, but on my mechanic’s advice, I was being careful). This also allowed me to raise and lower the exhaust easily as needed, without trying to support it while managing the hitch, particularly when I was ready to bolt it altogether. Other than that, it is a matter of following the instructions. It took me close to an hour and a half, but I worked carefully since I had not done this before. If I were to do it over again, I am sure I could do it in under an hour. Ordering and shipping was perfect. Once receives the order, they confirm by email and send updates, so it is easy to track. I recommend thinking how you will use the hitch, which seems obvious. I am using it primarily for hauling bikes, with second the possibility of pulling a small trailer. So I ordered the 2” adapter and hitch lock. I ordered the cover for the opening, which was unnecessary, since it comes with the cover. 36003

First, I received the order within three days of ordering. Kudos! This hitch fit perfectly on my 2005 Volvo V70. It came with a one page schematic of how to attach it, which was all that was needed. Using a 15mm socket and a 2' pipe extension, which was necessary, the existing bolts easily came out. After removing the existing bolts from each side, I started the install on the passenger side and propped the driver side of the hitch up on 3 stacked short pieces of 2X4. After securing, but not tightening the bolts, I switched to the driver side. I need to push the muffler mount out to get to the hitch up into position. I used a 5' 2X4 as leverage to raise the hitch into place, while pushing the muffler mount to the outside to get around the rubber mount. Worked beautifully for me and completed in less than 30 minutes. This is a really solid hitch and I really appreciate that it came with a drawbar. I almost just purchased a hitch from U-haul with installation, but I am so glad that I chose to do it myself. I highly recommend this hitch. 145386

This hidden hitch installed quite easily, once I had figured out what parts of the Volvo V70 went where after I took it apart. I haven't used it yet, but I am very satisfied with the mounting and the completeness of the kit. I almost brought a kit that was $20 cheaper, and then realized that the extras that were included with this kit more than made up for the difference (tow bar insert, and rubber receiver cover) Not only that, but etrailer exceeded expectations in friendliness (even though I didn't speak to anyone, just the emails they sent me. Came quickly and everything was there. 17395

I bought this hitch for my Black '07 xc70 after reading favorable reviews online and it quickly arrived 2 days later. I backed the back end of my wagon onto ramps ( I highly suggest this) and used a torque wrench with a 6" extender. The extender and longer handle of the torque wrench were essential in making this a quick and easy install. Without extension, loosening and tightening the bolts would have been a pain. All in all, this is a great product. It looks better than most aftermarket hitches and is very unobtrusive on the wagon. Install and cleanup took about an hour. If I had a helper to hold the other end of the hitch while installing this would have been much faster. Thanks etrailer for a great product and lightening-quick delivery! (no pics from me - my wagon looks just like the one in the video and the hitch looks just as advertised). 171220

The product fit well and seemed to be well made; the paint was thick and looks durable. Installation was easy. I selected it over the Draw-Tite because it looked like it would be less visible given that the ends taper back while the Draw-Tite is a straight tube along the entire length. That may be true, if so, I am glad I selected this one because it is still quite obvious. I think I would have been unhappy looking at that square tube on the back of my curvy Volvo, but for a more squarish bumper the Draw-Tite may be fine. I am using it to carry a 4-bike hitch rack and it looks like this will be just right. All in all, a good purchase. 16185

Great price and good fit I have 2007 Volvo XC and I needed a 2 inch receiver for a bike rack that I already had, but the two inch hitches were expensive, hard to find, and difficult to install. So I ordered the 1 1/4 and bought a Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2". Installation was fairly easy. No drilling and cutting of the bumper. I used small ramps to raise the back end of the car and that really helped getting the hitch bracket around the exhaust. I only needed to loosen the exhaust bracket on the left side. Have someone hold the hitch as you work the hitch bracket around the exhaust bracket. In all it took 40 minutes. 1490

by: Clint O.08/28/2011

Mechanically, this was a breeze to install, using car ramps. There are no nuts to deal with since they are built into the frame of the Volvo. Just remove the bolts holding the hidden license plate holder on the right side and the exhaust pipe on the left (an impact wrench is recommended for ease but a 1/2" drive socket set with a short pipe on the handle for extra torque also works. As everyone has commented, the hitch pin clip will not fit and you need either a locking type or one with a hole in the end and a large key ring or cotter pin. With the right tools and preparation, 30m. It took me an hour. 22945

Good Hitch This hitch comes with included Draw Bar. The finish was very good and no problems with the bolt holes alignment to the frame. The hitch cover(2) is included as well. Installation was not too difficult if you can have someone helping to support the hitch while you are placing in the bolts. I would recommend attaching the driver side bolts first as there is very little room to move that side to align the bolt holes. All in all, a relatively easy installation. 1061

This is my second Hidden Hitch--I must admit I was a little apprehensive about the installation because of the way the exhaust system is mounted, however, I did it by myself with the help of a cardboard box and a bucket. Metric socket is a must to loosen the factory bolts. By the way, I'm 72 and managed it without help, although it would be a whole lot easier with a helper!! The fit was superb, as was the last one I bought for my other vehicle. 7057

Insallation was easy Received e-mail confirmation that item was shipped. On day that was to arrive I lowered exhaust and had everything ready for install.(15 min.) Wife said I should not count my chickens before they are hatched. Then the UPS driver arrived, I said they just did. Took all of another 15 min. Looks great almost have to look for it without the drawbar installed. Quick shipping! Thanks for the great service. 2972

Cheap, fast, correct Wow! I ordered a hitch for my '07 Volvo XC70 - at a fraction of the cost my local dealer quoted - on Tuesday night and by Thursday evening it had arrived in GA from MO and was installed before lights out. Free, fast shipping, everything advertised was included, and it fit properly. Very simple installation as described. Pretty amazing. Nice job etrailer. 5119

Nice hitch, goes on in minutes. There is a problem that the pin clip does not fit on to the pull pin, no way no how, forget it, won't go on because the pin clip is too long and the hitch interferes. Don't know if my parts bag was wrong or what. But since I plan on putting a locking pull pin anyway, it doesn't matter. 10478

Volvo trailer hitch It is nice when something goes as advertised. It would have been a full excellent, except the clip for the hitch pin is too long and interferes with hitch receiver frame. I had to use a bolt to hold hitch in the receiver. Hidden Hitch's issue, not etrailer. 4015

  • Do Dual Exhausts on 2004 Volvo S60R Interfere with Hitch Installation

He confirmed that the dual exhausts will not cause any issues with installation of their 1-1/4-inch Class II trailer hitch # C12318.

  • Recommended 7-Way Trailer Connector Wiring for a 2001 Volvo V70
  • To install a matching 7-Way connector on your 2001 Volvo V70 wagon, you would first need to install a 4-Way connector. I would recommend using modulite hardwire kit # 119179KIT, which includes all necessary items to install the 4-Way connector on your vehicle, and features a circuit protected powered converter to protect your vehicle wiring from overload. You would need to use the included circuit tester to test the wires behind your vehicle tail lights for function. I would have...

If the combined weight of your horse and trailer (loaded and ready to tow) is less than these limits you could certainly tow with your Volvo.

  • Removing Rubber Isolator from Exhaust Hanger to Install a Hitch on a 2001 Volvo V70 Wagon
  • They do take a bit of force to get them off. The rubber isolators fit pretty snugly over the hangers so that they can absorb as much noise and vibration as possible, but they can be a pain to get off. Our installers spray a generous amount of WD-40 on the rubber isolators a few minutes before they undo them to help them slide of easier. Sometimes a pry bar is used to help them off.

  • Can Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 90804 on a Volvo XC70 Handle a 1,800 Pound Pop Up Camper
  • For trailer hitch # 90804 that you have purchased for your XC70, it has a capacity of 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 300 pounds tongue weight. If the camper weighs at most 1,800 pounds, then the hitch is more than capable of pulling the trailer. What you will need to look at is the towing capacity of the vehicle. If the vehicle is rated lower than the hitch, that is the capacity you have to go by. Check the owners manual for the vehicle towing capacity.
