As you can see, here is our main wiring harness, feeding the drivers side tail light assembly here. We have got three wires here. We have got a brown with white, which is going to be the running light lead that we are going to be tapping into the yellow, which is our left turn and left brake signal and then the black, which is the standard ground. And then what we want to do is to take our yellow wire here off of our wiring harness, and we want to go ahead and we are going to attach it directly to the yellow wire on our tail light assembly.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Chevrolet Impala

Today we are going to install part number 118417 from Tow Ready. We are going to install this on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. To install the T-1 connector, we have to get back behind the tail light assembly here and behind this plastic. We are also going to be taking off the passengers side tail light, too. And this whole panel will just pop up straight vertical. And we are going to take off this other wing nut right here. Now that we have got our tail light loose, we are going to just temporarily disconnect it from the wiring harness. And then this actual plug right here is where our T-1 connector is going to hook up to the vehicle. We will reconnect the T-1 connector back in, and just tuck that back between the bumper fascia and the body. And we are also going to take our 4-pole wire, and we are going to route that straight down, because that is going to come out by the hitch itself. Make sure to leave that ground wire, because we are going to attach it to the sheet metal below the tail light. And we will just clip our original wire harness back on.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Chevrolet Impala

Today we are going to install part number 90137 on a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. And this also applies to part number, from Draw-Tite, 36407. First we will show you where the hitch mounts up on the vehicle. It is going to mount up on the frame here - we are showing the drivers side. You use these two existing holes in the frame, and also this outside hole in the frame here, too. It will be the same thing on the passengers side. However, we are going to have to temporarily lower this exhaust so we have working room to get up in there. And then the exhaust will go back up when we are done. OK, we have got our exhaust down all the way now, and we will use our strap to pull it off to the side, and we will go ahead and start installing our hardware. What is going to happen is these plates and bolts will go inside this hole here and come out this hole and this hole. It is going to be pretty simple. We are going to run our bolt leader from one, out our access hole. Slide it on our plate - just pop that inside. And then screw on the bolt, pop it into place and back through. OK, we will do the same thing for the hole outside here, too. Same principle: just go through one hole and back out our access hole. This will use two of the longer of the six bolts. At this point, we can go ahead and install our hitch, since we have got all our hardware installed.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Chevy Impala

Today we are going to install part number 118417 on a 2007 Chevy Impala. The connection point for the T1 wiring harness is behind the passenger side tail light assembly. Right behind the bumper here. To access this we will have to open up the trunk and remove some of the fasteners to get the tail assembly off. We need to gain access to the fasteners that are holding the tail light assembly on. In doing so we are going to need to remove this screw here, there is one on each side. That will allow us to remove this back flange here. It might be sort of hard to see but there are actually 3 fasteners holding the tail light assembly on. We need to take all 3 of these off. That will allow us to remove the tail light assembly. Then you just want to carefully pry away and you can see the tail light assembly removes fairly easily.
