Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe - Curt

Today on our 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Curt Custom Fit class III trailer hitch receiver. This offers the two inch by two inch opening. It's part number is C13152. Here's our hitch, once we get it installed. You see we'll have our cross tube that's going to come across to the rear, then it's going to tuck up to our hidden connection points. We've got our two inch by two inch receiver tube opening and our flush reinforcement collar that's going to run around the end. We have our nice large open safety chain connection points.



Rhino Rack Roof Rack Review - 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on this 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe, we're going to be test fitting the Rhino-Rack Vortex Arrow Crossbar Roof Rack System, consisting of part numbers RRVA137B-2, those would be the crossbars, and part number RRSX032, and those are the SRB legs for the Vortex Arrow Crossbars. We already have the front crossbar installed, and these are going to work in the fixed mounts on your flush rail system on your Santa Fe. You're going to have three options to mount them in, and we've decided to go with the center option, and we'll repeat that for the rear, as well. Let's go ahead and show you how the rear one goes together. We already have it partially assembled, as that we have one leg already attached. I'm going to go ahead and flip this upside down. We'll start at the end. We'll pull off our end cap first, set that aside, then we'll take our leg and put it in place.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today, on our 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe, we'll be taking a look at the WeatherTech front floor mats in gray, part number WT464401. These are also available in black, part number WT444401, and in tan, part number WT454401. Here on our driver's side, we already have our mat installed. As you can see, we're going to have these channels all along the bottom of our mat to keep dirt, debris and liquid away from our feet. We'll also have these raised edges all along the floor mat to prevent the same dirt, debris and liquid from getting onto our carpet. Our WeatherTech floor mats also reach up under our dash to give us the most protection as possible. The floor mats have two mounting points which will fit over our factory mounting points. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get this installed. We'll start by removing our factory floor mat.



Firestone Coil Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

Today on our 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F4170. These air springs provide stability while driving and reduce strain on your vehicle suspension. Let's go ahead and go through the test course with some weight, the alternating bumps show that our new airbags really give us good controlled response. Finally we will finish with the solid speed bumps, which show the up and down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out of a driveway. Let's go ahead and see how it's installed. First thing we're going to in the installation of our new airbag, our air helper spring, is going to be to raise up the vehicle so that way the rear suspension hangs freely. Now to give yourself a little bit of more play, in between the coils up here we're going to undo the shock with a three quarter inch bolt located there. Now for safety if you have the vehicle raised up off the ground like we do, we're going to place a jack stand underneath here to assist us in lifting it and lowering it to remove that shock.

Hyundai Santa Fe Questions

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • You can install a Thule roof rack on your 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with the panoramic roof as long as it has the flush side rails that run front to back on the roof. You would use the 50 inch bars # THLB50, Podium feet, # TH460, and fit kit # THKIT4029 that you have referenced. You can see all of the current pricing on each of the product pages or below where the parts referenced are linked. You would not want to open the roof with the crossbars installed until you know...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • At this time the correct choice for the 2012 Hyundia Santa Fe SE with towing package is the Draw-Tite custom fit wiring, # 118258. Draw-Tite has tested this harness on the 2011-2012 models and verified that it will work without issue. I have attached a link to the installation instructions for you to review also. You should verify, with a circuit tester, # 3808, that the connectors on your Santa Fe are fully functional before purchasing the tow package wiring harness. If one...

  • 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...

  • You are correct that the discontinued Rola Roof Rack # 59765 was a fit for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe with panoramic sunroof. The other Rola rack you referenced, # 59790, is not a fit for your 2013 Santa Fe. Our contact at Rola advised that they have a replacement for the discontinued rack, part # 59779, which will fit the Santa Fe with a naked roof. We do also have other options for you and these will vary depending on which specific version of the Santa Fe you have; Hyundai...

  • There are a couple of measurements you can take on your 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe. First, you will want to measure the crossbars themselves to make sure any basket you select will fit the style and size you have. The next important measurement is the distance center-to-center. You said your crossbars measured 43 inches, so that will be the measurement I use when making a recommendation. Unfortunately, the Rhino Rack Cargo Carrier, part # RMCB, you referenced, will fit on...

  • The best advice I can give you for determining whether or not you have the tow package wiring would be to try contacting a different Hyundai dealership. With your VIN number they should be able to tell you for sure if you have the tow package. The factory tow harness is located under the passenger side of the vehicle near the rear tire along the frame. If you find the harness that does not necessarily mean you have the tow package as some times other connections or harnesses...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • The difference between the 10-10 grease seals, # RG06-090, and the 10-36 grease seals, # RG06-070, is their inner diameter. The 10-10 grease seals fit older spindles with a seal journal (see photo) diameter of 2.125 inches. The 10-36 grease seals fit newer spindles with a seal journal of 2.250 inches. On 5,200 lb, 6,000 lb and 7,000 lb axles, manufacturers are no longer making spindles with a 2.125 inch seal journal, so they needed to come up with a seal that could fit the slightly...
