We will show you the layout of the T-One connector. The yellow wire goes to the driver side, so does the red and brown wire. The green wire will go all the way to the passenger side. :20



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Honda Civic

Today on this 2008 Honda Civic we are going to be installing part number 11437 from Curt. First thing we need to do is get underneath the vehicle. We need to get rid of this plastic shroud that is underneath the truck pan. There will be a verity of fasteners on the shroud ranging from plastic rivets to threaded bolts. Next we will go ahead and lower the exhaust itself. It will be one rubber hanger at the very end of the muffler that we will remove and use that to lower everything. :47



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2002 Honda Civic

Today on this 2002 Honda Civic we are going to be installing wiring harness 119176KIT. The first thing we have to do is clean out the trunk so we can access our tail lights but we are going to do that by removing the bottom carpet and then we are going to fold back the side carpet here to access our tail lights. We are going to take out these plastic screw rivets here and that should be the only one we need to remove on the driver side. Just pull back the trunk liner. You can see we have access to our tail lights on the driver side. Now with this wiring harness there is no T-Connector so we are going to have to splice into the existing wire for our harness to work. First we are going to run in ground using the existing wire and the self taping screw. We are just going to drill it into the sheet metal so we have a solid ground to work off of when we are testing our wires. 00:55



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2002 Honda Civic

Today on this 2002 Honda Civic, we are going to be installing part number 24706 from Draw-Tite. And this also applies to Hidden Hitch part number 60867. OK, the first thing that I am going to do is go ahead and show you the mounting locations for our hitch. It is going to be the existing hole right here and it is going to be the same on both sides. We are also going to mount here to the tow loop. Now, in order to put our hitch up, we are actually going to have to fish wire our carriage bolt and block through this existing hole here. But, it is not wide enough so we are actually going to have to make it a little wider so our parts can fit through. We are just going to use a hammer and a chisel. We are just going to check and see if our block fits through. And it seems like it does so that is a good sign. 0:41



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2007 Honda Civic

Today on this 2007 Honda Civic we are going to be installing Draw-Tite hitch part number 24763. This installation will also apply for Hidden Hitch part number 60822. We are underneath the vehicle, taking a look at the passenger side frame rail first, we are going to do a couple of things in preparation before we can get started installing our trailer hitch. First thing we need to do is lower the exhaust off the rear most hanger right here. What you want to do is spray down the two studs on the exhaust here with a spray lubricant, like a WD-40, and just take a pry bar or a screwdriver if you do not have one and pry those off of there. The exhaust will then come down for you and give you more room to work. :47



Roadmaster Base Plate Installation - 2002 Honda Civic

Today on this 2002 Honda Civic we are going to install base plate from Roadmaster part number 521537-1. These base plates are going to mount to the frame, sub frame, and the bumper behind the fascia. To begin our install what we are going to have to do is take down this lower plastic cover here. There are about 10 fasteners that hold this in place so we are going to go through all of these and take this down. There are a couple of screws we have to take out too, one on this side and one on the other. Next we will work on the fasteners that go up inside the fender well. Next we will start on the fasteners for the bumper fascia itself. We will start from the top and then work our way down to the sides. We can take out this body screw right here and go back to the passenger side and do that one too. Be very careful, this panel just unsnaps pulling it straight out. Once you get both sides loosened it is a good idea to have an extra set of hands to take the fascia off. 01:05



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on this 2009 Honda Civic we will be installing wiring harness part number 118420. Our harness here consists of three different ports. We have got two ports that are going to hook in over on the driver side, that will be the port with the brown and red wires and the port with the yellow and white wire. Also on our harness here, we are going to connect on the driver side, the white wire there with ring terminal on it. That is our ground wire. The third port with the longer green lead we are going to feed over to the passenger side tail light and we will connect them to give us our right turn. The connection points for our wiring harness are located directly behind the tail light assemblies here on the interior. To gain access to those connectors, we need to go ahead and remove some interior pieces. We need to remove the center threshold piece here and also pull back the interior fabric here on both sides and to pull back the interior fabric here we have got three flathead screws per side.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Honda Civic

Today on this 2009 Honda Civic we will be installing Draw-Tite hitch part number 24763. This installation will also apply for the Hidden Hitch part number 60822. We are underneath the vehicle and we are actually looking at the passenger side frame rail. We need to do a couple of things in preparation before we can actually get started pointing out the mounting holes for the trailer hitch. As you can see we have got our exhaust here on the passenger side. We need to go ahead and lower it down to get it out of the way. To do that we are going to remove it off of its rubber hanger here using just a spray lubricant like a WD-40. Before we can remove the heat shield, we need to actually remove this plastic shroud from underneath here. Because the fourth bolt for the heat shield is actually covered by our shroud.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid

Today we are going to install part number 24763 on our 2008 Honda Civic hybrid model. The hitch is going to install above the exhaust on this frame rail behind the heat shield right here. It wraps all the way around the muffler. It is also going to attach to the tow hook right here. Also on the frame rail over here just on this side of the shroud. The first step is to remove the exhaust and also, to do that, we need to remove the rubber isolator from the exhaust muffler. And that will give us some wiggle room. Next we have to unbolt this heat shield right here. Alright next what needs to happen is that this rivet right here has to be removed. We will put it back up when we are done. What we are going to do now is go ahead and hang the hitch. We are going to start off at the tow loop. As you can see, we have the U-bolt hanging down from it. It might be a good idea to have an extra set of hands to work around the muffler.
