Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we're going to be showing you how to install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit. Part number is RM-751428. Now to begin the installation of our brake light switch, which is required in this application for the InvisiBrake. We want to install the switch into its bracket. I'm going to leave it at its shallowest setting and then we can adjust with this nut here on the back, how far out that's going to stick. As we turn this, it'll allow that switch to come further and further through that bracket, allowing us to fine tune our adjustment. Before we get this all the way up underneath our dashboard, I want to take care of getting it pre wired here.



Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we're going to take a look at, and show you how to install the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System. This is part number RM-8700. What we'll do is just simply pull that breakaway switch out of the front, and we want to see the system activate. We want to ensure that it's pulling straight down on our brake pedal, that all of our connection points are holding nice and solid. Then we'll also want to be sure, when we put our breakaway switch back in, that it releases fully. Now we want to begin by getting our box mounted into position. We want to have it so that our adjuster here is readily available.



Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Blue Ox 4-Diode Tow Bar Wiring Kit. Part number is BX8848. All right, here's what the diode kit's going to look like minus that 26' length of wire that we've already ran. Now the diodes are going to take two inputs, so we can have our towed vehicle's input and our towing vehicle's input, whether it's for running lights or whether it's for our turn signals or brakes. We have this single output coming to our factory bulb. We're going to have four of these. These are going to help to prevent backfeed from the motorhome to the car or from the car to the motorhome.



Blue Ox Fuse ByPass Switch Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be showing you to how to install the blue ox fuse bypass switch for towed vehicle. Excepting the ATM mini fuse and ten inches long, part number is bx88271. The blue ox fuse bypass is going to be an excellent solution for those vehicles where fuses need to be removed for it to go into tow mode. Essentially what we're going to do is just replace that fuse into the fuse bypass. Then when we turn our switch in the down position it would be just like pulling that fuse out of the power block. That's going to allow us to go into tow mode without pulling this whole panel off trying to figure out which fuse it is and pull it out.



Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today in our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we are going to be taking a look at, and also showing you how to install the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with removable arms. Part number is the BX1692. Alright, here is what our base plate kit is going to look like installed; you can see we have got our removable arms in place here. It is a really clean look; most of it is hidden up behind the fascia area of the vehicle. To remove our arms, we will just pull out on the pin, rotate them, and slide them out. Then we have got protective caps that are going to slide in there, and keep the dirt and debris and stuff out of there.



Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit With Removable Arms. Part number is 3141-1. We can grab our removable arms. We're going to get these slid into position. It's offset, we want that offset to be facing out, and the small locking tab here on the bottom to line up with the locking tab on the base plate. Then we're just going to take one of our supplied 5/8th pins, slide right through the hole in the arm, and then we secure it on the other side with the clip.

The primary difference between the Draw-Tite and the CURT trailer hitches is that on the CURT it's just more aesthetically pleasing when it's mounted to the vehicle.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 Chevrolet HHR - Curt

Today, on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11447. Here's what the hitch looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, it sets up nicely to the fascia on the underside here. Unless you're getting down low, you're really not going to be able to see that cross tube. You've got your 1-1/4" by 1-1/4" receiver tube here, and you've got the connection point for the safety chains here, which is this steel plate that's welded to the bottom side with the holes cut in it. With how this hitch is set up, it really doesn't eliminate much of the ground clearance that you had here at the rear of the vehicle. When using hitch-mounted accessories, such as bike racks and cargo carriers, Curt does recommend the use of the stabilization strap.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today in our 2011 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be taking a look at the WeatherTech front auto floor mats in tan, part number WT451451. Also available in black, part number WT441451, and in grey, part number WT461451. I really like the way that these WeatherTech mats contour the floorboard and the way it gives you extra coverage to make sure that that carpeting underneath doesn't get dirty and that it helps keep your shoes clean. Down here we've got the existing floor mat in the vehicle. As you can see this has collected a lot of dirt and debris and also if we peel this up and look underneath you can see that there's other dirt and debris that's gotten under there, around the edges in particular. We'll remove this floor mat in order to install our WeatherTech. On this one when we put it in we want to get it down in a position, but then it has a little cutout here in order to put that factory floor mat hook back through to help secure it into place. As you can see, once it's all in place and settled, this fits very well to the contours of the floorboard here. We've got this raised lip that goes all the way around to help contain spills.



WeatherTech 2nd Row Rear Floor Mat Review - 2011 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be taking a look at the WeatherTech second row auto floor mats in tan, part number WT451452. Also available in black, part number WT441452, and in gray, part number WT461452. I really like the way that these floor mats contour and look in the vehicle because it does give you that wall to wall coverage and just really helps it look a lot nicer back here. Here we've got the factory floor mats. As you can see, there's plenty of dirt and debris on the floor mats, but also, if you lift up the corner, you can see that there's plenty of dirt and debris underneath the floor mats as well because there's no lip to the sides of these to help control it. Being that this mat is a carpet mat, dirt and debris can get ground down into it and it can be hard to keep these looking clean. Now let's remove the factory floor mats in order to install our new WeatherTechs. As you can see with these new floor mats, we get much better coverage here from the center hump all the way over to the threshold at the door.



Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today, on our 2008 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be installing the Hopkins tow bar wiring, part number HM56100. To begin our install, we're going to start at the rear of the vehicle. We need to open up the rear hatch and remove the access panels just behind the tail light assemblies. There's one on each side. I'm just going to use a flat blade screw driver, get behind it and pop it free. Behind the access panel, we can see the manufacturer's wiring as it comes into the tail light. Here from the converter box is our yellow wire connector that will ultimately plug in here behind the driver's side tail light assembly.



Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2008 Chevrolet HHR were going to be installing the Roadmaster InvisiBrake supplemental breaking system for towed vehicles part number RM-8700. Lets go ahead and take a look at our InvisiBrake in action. When pressing on the break pedal in the tow vehicle itll activate the InvisiBrake air cylinder which will pull on the cable and pull on the brake pedal in our towed vehicle the HHR.To begin our install we need to find a suitable mounting location for the InvisiBrake box. For this application, weve got plenty of clearance between the floor board and the bottom of the seat. Even when the seat is fully back itll still clear the InvisiBrake box. We move the floor mat out of the way.



Blue Ox Coiled Electrical Cord Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2008 Chevrolet HHR we'll be installing the Blue Ox 7-wire to 6-wire coiled electrical cord, part number BX88206. For this application the vehicle has been set up to be towed, and instead of using multiple connectors and umbilical cables to connect the tow vehicle to the vehicle being towed we're going to use the Blue Ox 6-pin connector. On the car side we have a 6-round connector. Then on the RV side we have our 7-blade connector. By removing the back we can attach our wiring directly to the connector and then the umbilical connections to the towed vehicle, our HHR, and then the other side will be a 7-blade connector that will go to the back of the tow vehicle. To start, our wires are a little bit long here so we're going to go ahead and trim them back. Now once I have the wires cut off I'm going to go ahead and add some wire loom to help bundle them up and clean up the install look.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Chevrolet HHR - Curt

Today on our 2007 Chevrolet HHR, we're going to be installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number C11447. 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 your hitch, such as a bicycle rack or cargo carrier. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most edge of the bumper is approximately 6". From the top of the opening in the receiver to the ground is approximately 10". Now let's go ahead and install our hitch.



Blue Ox Base Plate Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today on our 2008 Chevy HHR, we'll be installing the Blue Ox base plate, Part # BX1692. We've already gone ahead and raise the front of the vehicle and remove the front tires. This will make it easier to remove the passenger as necessary on the inner wheel well. With the hood popped, we got four fasteners just inside of the front headlights that will need to be removed. We'll move to the inner fender well, we got one more screw and two pushpin fasteners for each side. Each process we do here on the passenger side is going to get repeat identically on the driver side.





Chevrolet HHR Questions

  • I looked up an online version of the owners manual for a 2007 Chevy HHR and found that it can be flat towed. It gives the following steps: First set the parking brake. Then turn the ignition key to ACC to unlock the steering wheel. Next shift into neutral. Then release the parking brake. You also have to pull fuse 8 from the floor console fuse block to prevent draining the battery. The manual also states to not exceed 65 miles per hour. Any time you ever have a flat towing question,...

  • Curt and Draw Tite are not the same company. Curt is it's own company whereas Draw Tite is made by Cequent which also makes Reese, Hidden Hitch, and Pro Series hitches. They are all great brands that I would feel comfortable recommending for your 2001 Chevy HHR, but for your vehicle I would go with the Draw Tite part # 24756 since it has the most positive reviews over all of the other hitches available. Plus, if you were to use a non-supported hitch accessory like a bike rack...

  • Your 2006 Chevy HHR has a Class I 1-1/4 inches hitch receiver, so you would use the recommended ball mount that will fit your Class I 1-1/4 inches receiver. The Draw-Tite Ball Mount, # 3594, is the recommended ball mount that will safely work on your Class I hitch. You will also need the hitch ball for the ball mount. The hitch ball size will depend on the coupler size on the trailer. It would be either 1-7/8 hitch ball like the Tow Ready Ball, # 19256, or a 2 inch hitch...

  • I did a little research and found that the draw bar came with your Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch Receiver with Drawbar, part # 60815 (no longer available), is the Sportframe Drawbar 4 inch Rise, part # 3594. Since your hitch is a Class I hitch it is not recommended that you use any drawbar other than the one that the hitch manufacturer recommends otherwise you will void your warranty. The reason they are very particular about using the right rise/drop drawbar is that if you...

  • We do indeed offer two different Class I receiver hitches that are compatible with your 2008 Chevy HHR SS. I recommend Draw-Tite # 24756.

  • To use the Roadmaster Even Brake Braking System, # RM-9400, in your 2011 HHR, you will simply install the braking system using the installation instructions that came with the Even Brake system. The only difference in the installation is that you will use the 2nd Vehicle Kit, # RM-98400, instead of the parts that were included with the Even Brake system. The first step to install this kit is to find a suitable location for the breakaway switch and the ICX transmitter. The breakaway...

  • There are actually a couple of different ways you can add wiring or lights to your 2011 Chevy HHR so it can be flat towed behind a motor home. I have included a link to an FAQ article that explains the different options. If you plan on towing the HHR often, it would be beneficial to install diodes using Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, # RM-154. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation. If you do not plan on towing it often, I recommend...

  • A tow bar you could use to pull your 2006 Chevy HHR is the RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar, part # RM-020. You may also be interested in purchasing a Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnect Kit, part # RM-201, if you would like to be able to easily remove the tow bars from your HHR. You will also need a set of Roadmaster Tow Bars for the 2006 Chevrolet HHR, part # 3141-1, in order to connect your HHR to your tow bars.

  • Any bike rack that you could use, see link, would most likely have to come off first before being able to easily fold and stow the tow bar. Out of the available bike racks you would have to go with a 3 bike model, # S64910-2, because none of the 2 bike models will fit the 2 inch receiver in # RM-077-2. I have linked a video and instructions for the bike rack for you.

  • Probably the easiest solution is to first use a 6-Way to 4-Way adapter, like # PK12717, and plug the 6-Way side into the motor home. Next, add a light kit to plug into the 4-Way flat part of the adapter, like Magnetic Towing Light Kit, # C-ATL20A. Mount the lights on a metal surface on the HHR and you have lights for towing your HHR. For a more permanent solution, you could install the Tail Light Isolating Diode System with Wiring Harness, # 38955. After installing the diodes,...

  • I would recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24756 for your 2011 Chevrolet HHR. This trailer hitch is rated Class I and has a max tongue weight of 200 pounds. Draw-Tite's Class I trailer hitch will work well for carrying a bike rack. I have attached an installation video of this hitch on a 2011 Chevrolet HHR. The hitch is competitively priced with other Class I trailer hitches for your HHR. One reason I recommend this Draw-Tite trailer hitch over the comparably priced Curt...

  • The important measurement to keep in mind for picking out a bike rack to go with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24756 is the distance from the center of the hitch pin out to the furthest point out on your rear bumper. Luckily, we have had the chance to install the # 24756 on an HHR that is very similar to yours and know that you need 5-1/2 inches of clearance. You will need to find a bike carrier with a distance that is greater than 5-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch...

  • The Saris Thelma part # SA4239B is a great bike rack that would work well for your 2006 Chevy HHR to carry three bikes. Unlike most platform bike racks this one is relatively lightweight too at 37 lbs. The shank of the rack has a rise of 8 inches too which will give you great ground clearance. The Thelma would be a great choice that I would recommend. The closest rack we offer to this one is the Kuat Transfer part # TS03G but this rack weighs considerably more at 52 lbs. If...

  • Base plates are only available for the HHR if it is NOT an SS model. I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit, part # 3141-1. The least expensive tow bar I would recommend using would be the Roadmaster Tracker you referenced. For a smoother ride and easier hook up and disconnect, the Roadmaster Falcon 2, part # RM-520 would be a better choice. You will also need a lighting solution, safety cables and in many states, a supplemental braking system. I will link you...

  • I would not recommend towing your 2011 Chevrolet HHR at an angle. You will want the tow set up to be as level as possible. For your situation I would recommend using a tow bar that attaches to a ball mount like the Roadmaster StowMaster Car-Mounted Tow Bar, # RM-501, with a ball mount that has the correct drop. I have attached an article to help you choose a ball mount with the correct drop. First you should measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver on your...

  • We currently offer 2 different Class I hitches available for your 2008 Chevy HHR LT1. There are a few differences among them. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24756 does not include a draw bar, and would be a better choice for an attachment point for a bike rack. The Curt receiver, part # 11447 also includes the draw bar and pin and clip and is very similar in appearance to the other hitch, with the exception of a glossier paint finish. It would install in the same manner as...

  • A class I is the only receiver available for the 2009 or 2010 HHR. The frame attachment points on the HHR are not strong enough to withstand the increased tongue weight capacity that a Class III hitch can handle, therefore the manufacturers do not offer them. Mounting the bikes to the roof of the vehicle would be your only option, although getting those heavy bikes up there will not be easy. If your HHR has the factory rack with the crossbars, I would recommend the Thule...

  • For your 2008 Chevy HHR you would want a Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 3141-1 like you referenced. This base plate kit is confirmed to work with your Falcon 2 tow bar. This base plate kit will bolt onto your vehicle and would not require any welding to install. You will also need safety cables. I recommend Roadmaster safety cables, part # RM-643. These are coiled so they will not drag on the ground. The next component you will need to flat tow the Malibu is lighting....
