Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - Curt

Today on 2017 Hyundai Sante Fe, we're going to be taking a look and also showing you how to install the Curt Custom Fit Class Three Trailer Hitch Receiver. This offers the two inch by two inch opening. It's part number is C131153. Now after installation, this is what the rear of our vehicle is going to look like. Our hitch remains completely hidden behind the fascia. Even our cover here is going to go back into place, keeping even our receiver tube opening, our safety chain connection points, everything out of the way. Now when we're ready to use our hitch it's going to be just a couple of push pin fasteners here on the side. To pull those off, you just take out that middle core and the outside will come with it.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe - Draw-Tite

This offers the 2 inch by 2 inch opening. Its part number is 75776. Right now, here's what our hitch looks like after installation. As you can see, completely hidden. The way they designed it, we can put our cover right back on. Put it back in with the 2 push-pin fasteners, and we'll never have to see our hitch until we need to use it. Now, when that comes up, it's an easy process.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today, on our 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to be showing you how to install the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with the 4-pole flat trailer connector, part number is C56151. Here's what our kit is going to contain. It's going to be a very straightforward, easy-to-use system. The heart of the system here, that's going to be our powered converter box. That's going to convert the signals that come in from the taillights themselves into a usable signal that we can then plug into our trailer, maybe our cargo carrier. This will be compatible with the 5-pole, the 6-pole, and the 7-pole adapters, so we can get our brake signals through there, our turn signals, and our marker lights. On the other end here, we've got our factory plugs.

Today on our 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tow Ready T1 vehicle wiring harness with the four-pole flat trailer connector. Part number is 118269. Here's what our wiring kit's going to look like when we pull it out of the box. It's a really simple, straightforward kit. We've got our two plugs here, these are going to go directly into our factory tow package plugs. That's then going to send the signal through our wire into our converter box, where it's going to be converted into a usable signal that we can use for a trailer.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on our 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack, part number TH912XTR. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go ahead and take a closer look and showoff some of the features. First thing I'd like to show is that the cradles themselves are adjustable along the length of the bike rack arms to accommodate different size bikes and style bikes. Also how it's attached to the rack, we have 3 points of contact with the bike's frame. We have 2 up at the top here and 1 off to the side here. That's going to serve as an anti sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.



Rola Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on our 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe we're going to be test fitting the Rola TX-102 2 bike rack, part number 59400. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first one I like to point out is that it has an integrated cable lock here in the center of the mast. You pull it up, around your bikes and it attaches to this end here where you will lock it to add some additional security for your bikes to prevent theft and tampering. How the bike attaches to the rack, we're going to have 3 points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have 2 straps up at the top here and then one off to the side and that's going to serve as an anti sway strap to keep the bike moving too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bikes in front of it and damaging them both.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on this 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to be test fitting the Thule Vertex 4-Bike rack, part number TH9029XT. We already have a bike installed. Let's go ahead and show off some of the features and take a closer look. First thing that I'd like to point out is that does have this integrated cable lock here in the center of the mast. This would be pulled, wrap around the bikes, and attach it to this end point here, then locked to ensure greater security and preventing theft and tampering of your bikes. How the bike is actually attached to the rack, we're going to have three points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have two straps up at the top here and then one off to the side here, and that's going to serve as an anti-swing strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth.

CIPA Clip-on Towing Mirror Installation - 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the CIPA Clip-On Universal Towing Mirror. This is part number 7070, sold as a quantity of one. Now we can take a look at the field of view difference that we'll expect. I'm at the back of what is about a 25-foot trailer hooked to the vehicle there. As I step over, you can see we've got plenty of room in our factory mirror, until we get to about this point. That's when we're going to transition over to that towing mirror. As you can see, as I step out it gives us good room over here.

Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe we're taking a look at the Thule Raceway Pro trunk-mount 2-bike rack. That part number is TH9001PRO. Now we already have our bike secured down.

That is because if we don't have the strap we are going to make contact from our handlebars onto our vehicle. If you have handlebars like this or even wider ones, you would want to purchase that strap just so your bike doesn't hit your vehicle. We do have the two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame here and one is our anti-sway in the back here.





Hyundai Santa Fe Questions

  • Do you mean that the inside of the tread (the half closest to the trailer) is wearing unevenly? Or are you speaking of the inside sidewall? Many things can cause uneven tire wear, including a bent axle, an overloaded trailer and worn or broken suspension components. A trailer axle should be slightly arched, with the high spot in the center of the trailer and the spindles on either end being slightly lower. When the trailer is loaded the arch will flatten, placing the trailer...

  • Many original equipment floor mats supplied by auto makers have special fixtures in them to help hold them in place on the floor of the vehicle. These often consist of a small hook attached to the permanent carpet layer and a grommet in the removable floor mat that catches on that hook to keep the mat from sliding around under the drivers feet. Sometimes these mats also have small projections, or spikes, on the bottom surface to grip the permanent carpet layer. Some aftermarket...

  • Both the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero and Thule AeroBlade roof rack systems have very nice features and would work well for your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both systems are designed to work on vehicles that have the flush mounted rail system. As far as the design or advantages or disadvantages of the Rhino-Rack system versus the Thule system, it is very difficult to say it has features that are better than the Thule. They both have very similar crossbar designs and features but the Rhino-Rack...

  • The physics of a weight distribution system can be a little confusing. But, basically the spring bars in the system push weight forward and backward so that the weight is more evenly pushed to the front and rear axles of the tow vehicle and the trailer axles. The actual tongue weight on the ball may not change significantly. Using a weight distribution system does not allow the vehicle to tow any more weight, but it does allow the hitch to carry more weight. The towing capacity...

  • If your Santa Fe does not have factory-installed flush side rails that run front to back on your roof (and I believe that it does not have these) you can select the Rola Roof Rack for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof, part # 59779. If your Santa Fe Sport does in fact have the factory-installed roof rails that run front to back on your roof, then you can use the Rola Roof Rack, part # 59766, which is intended for vehicles that do have the factory installed...

  • It looks like you purchased Curt trailer hitch # C13153. With any of the trailer hitch mount cargo carriers that we carry you cannot insert a bike rack in the square tube that runs down the middle of the carrier. There is no pin hole and the extension of that set up would be too much torque even for a Class III trailer hitch. You could use dual receiver adapter # D-192. You would put the bike rack in the top and the cargo carrier in the bottom. However, the bikes will hang...

  • You will need a few different items to add a 7-way trailer connector to your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe because Hyundai did not offer a factory connection for a 7-way trailer connector, only for a 4-way. If your Santa Fe was pre-wired for the factory tow package, then the first item that you will want is the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118269. This will add a 4-way flat trailer connector. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. Next, you will need...

  • From the research I did the easiest way to determine if you have a tow package would be to check to see if your 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe has a transmission cooler mounted in front of the radiator. A transmission cooler looks basically like a miniature radiator that will be mounted in front of the radiator. If your vehicle has a transmission cooler then you know it has a tow package. You can also look under the driver side wheel well to see if the connections are there. Check out...

  • For your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe with the panoramic sunroof, you will want to consult your owners manual or with the dealership to find what the roof weight capacity is for your vehicle. Please keep in mind the weight of any racks, and cargo carriers as well as the cargo would need to be considered when dealing with the roof weight capacity. I recommend the 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Roof Rack by Thule. There are three numbers that make up the roof rack system for your vehicle. The...

  • As long as the bumper is not aluminum, and the seams on the bumper are continuously (not spot) welded, a bumper hitch like those you mentioned can be used. You will also need to ensure that the bumper is rated to handle the weight of the bikes plus the rack. Of the three, I would recommend the Curt # E-100 because of its higher capacity and tougher construction. You do not mention which bike rack you are planning on using. You will want to be sure to use a bike rack that...

  • Your best option is to re-tap the threads, if you take your time and follow the tapping directions carefully you should be able to mount your hitch on your 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe in no time. I have also included a link to a video that shows how you can make your own thread tap. First, you will want to select a tap that is slightly bigger than the M10x1.25 bolts that you originally tried to install in your Santa Fe. You will also want to buy a new bolt that is the same size of...

  • As long as you have either the 2.0 liter or the 2.4 liter engine in your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Curt says the hitch part # C13152 is confirmed as a fit and would work well. This is a 2 inch hitch. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes...

  • I have a couple different options on ways to fix a loose ball mount. The Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin, # SHP2061, dramatically reduces any movement or vibration between your hitch and hollow shank ball mount. The No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, # 93347, wedges itself between the receiver and ball mount to take up play and eliminate rattle. The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch, # RM-061, helps eliminate rattle and sway within your hitch receiver.

  • Rhino Rack offers a reasonably priced rack system for your Santa Fe Sport. The rack consists of the aluminum Vortex crossbars, part # RRVA137S-2 and the Leg Kit to attach to the side rails is part # RRSX032. This rack is a confirmed fit for your vehicle, and is compatible with the glass roof. I checked with Rhino Rack, and found that you CAN operate the sunroof with the crossbars in place, but any accessory mounted to the rack that extends below the crossbar might interfere....

  • For the Rola Sports Series Roof Rack # 59766 you referenced for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, I recommend the Yakima Stacker Roof Mounted 2 Kayak Carrier System # Y04036. This post-style, fishhook mount system allows you to carry 2 kayaks on your car at once. This carrier features heavy-duty straps with padded cam buckles with a tightening strap to give you complete control over grip and padded buckles protect both your boat and car. The kayaks must be positioned on their sides...

  • Yes, the Curt trailer hitch # C13152 will fit your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. I have linked the instructions and a video showing the installation of the hitch on a similar vehicle. If you plan on doing some towing with the hitch then I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. For trailer wiring there are a couple of options. If your Santa Fe came with the factory tow package (the dealer...

  • Yes, trailer wiring harness # 118269 does have a fuse in a black holder just below the large black converter box. If that fuse is fine then use the vehicle owners manual to find any fuses related to tow package wiring on the vehicle to check them. If all of the fuses are good and the harness still does not have power at the 4-Way with any of the light functions on then it is likely that the short damaged something inside the converter and it will have to be replaced.

  • We have everything that you will need to add a bike rack to your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe. The first decision that you will need to make is if you want a trunk mounted bike rack or a hitch mounted bike rack. A trunk mounted bike rack like the Thule Raceway 3 Bike Rack, # TH9002PRO, will attach to your vehicle using 4 retractable cables that attach to the top and bottom edges of your rear hatch and it has rubber pads that sit on your rear hatch to support the rack. I have attached...

  • Yes, the Rhino Rack Roof Rack that consists of the following part numbers # RRVA137B-2 and # RRSX032 will fit your 2014 Hyudai Santa Fe with a panoramic sunroof. When this rack is installed you won't be able to open the sunroof. You would be able to remove the rack when not in use and regain function of the sunroof. I attached an install video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • The Replacement 2 inch Hitch Adapter, part # 853-7489, you asked about is an adapter, that Thule says will fit TH9028, TH9029, TH9030, TH9031 and TH934XTR bike carriers. They have the threaded hole in the shank that aligns with the hole on the adapter. If your bike carrier is one of those listed, this adapter would work for you. If you do have one of the bike carriers listed then this adapter will allow you to use a 1-1/4 inch shank bike rack with a hitch that has a 2 inch receiver...
