Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Acura MDX

Today on this 2010 Acura MDX we are going to install part number 13354 from Curt. First thing we need to do to get started is lower the spare tire.

So lower the exhaust next and then the heat shields that are above the exhaust, we will take those down too. All of this will go back up once the hitch is installed. For the lowering of the exhaust what we are going to do is put a strap across the exhaust pipes themselves so when we lower them we can do it in a controlled manner so we do not do any damage to the exhaust system. 00:42
