Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Ford Edge

Today on this 2009 Ford Edge we are going to be installing hitch part number 75526. This application will also apply for Hidden Hitch part number 87433. Okay we are underneath the vehicle and before we can get started we need to go ahead and lower the exhaust down and get it out of the way. There are three hangers located here at the rear of the vehicle that we need to remove the exhaust off of. One here on the drivers side, one here at the center of the vehicle, and one hereon the passengers side. Before I do remove all three hangers from the exhaust I want to make sure I support the center exhaust tube here. Once we remove the exhaust from its hangers the exhaust could fall and damage itself. I am just going to take a basic ratchet strap here and just hang it from the suspension enough to support the exhaust tube here. We want to just spray the stud here down with a spray lubricant like a WD-40. Then we can just use a crowbar and try to get behind there and pry it off.
