Today on this 2009 Hyundai Genesis we are going to install part number 36486 from Draw-Tite. This is also going to apply to part number 90196 from Hidden Hitch. This is what the hitch looks like on the vehicle, we will give you some measurements. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground is going to be 9 inches on this particular vehicle and from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be six inches. 00:23
Today we are going to install part number 12086 from Curt, and this is a 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch. And we are going to install this on a 2009 Hyundai Genesis. First off, we will show you where the hitch mounts up on the frame. We are looking underneath the passengers side of the vehicle, and we are up by the exhaust and heat shield. That little flat spot between the two is where the hitch actually mounts up on the frame. What is going to happen is, we are going to have to lower the exhaust out of the way. Then we take the heat shield down, and then we are going to put our hitch up into position. We are going to mark our holes to mount it with and then take it back down. Then we will drill out hour holes, install our hardware, and put everything back together - plus making a cutout for the exhaust shield. And this is going to be identical on both sides of the vehicle.
