Today on this 2011 Hyundai Sonata we will be installing Draw-Tite hitch part number 24853. And this installation will also apply for Hidden Hitch part number 60269. Alright, we are underneath the vehicle and the first thing we need to do is go ahead and lower the exhaust down to get that out of our way so we can work. This particular vehicle has single exhaust which is strictly on the passenger side. Some models will have dual exhaust so you will need to repeat this procedure for both sides. We will need to lower it down off of its rearmost hanger, which is just rear of the muffler itself. And if you move forward, almost even with the axle, there is a second hanger we are going to need to lower the exhaust off of. We are going to need to go ahead and remove, not only the hanger, but the bracket. 0:39

The first thing that we need to do to start off is we need to remove this panel right here. What is going to happen is the arm of the hitch is going to go right through this part of this right here. So we are just going to take it down and leave it off. It really does not serve much of a purpose and the hitch will be in the way anyways. It looks like there are two fasteners hiding back here too, one here and here. You can see that this is where, if the vehicle had dual exhaust, it would be in this spot here. So that is what that panel did, basically enclosed that area. 0:38

You have to route from one side to the other, so this panel has to come loose, this panel has to come loose, and also this panel on the other side will have to come loose. We will take apart our connection point here. We will install the T-1 connector. The yellow side will go to the drivers side. We will install that, and then the factory wire will plug onto the other side on the T-connector. And we have a ground wire here. We will attach that to the factory ground right here.

Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Hyundai Sonata

Today we are going to install part number 11325 from Curt. And we are going to install this on a 2006 Hyundai Sonata. The first step involved is to go ahead and lower the exhaust. We also just added a strap to keep the exhaust from coming down too far, and if we have to we can actually lower this a little easier with the strap. Also, we sprayed down the rubber hangers with some WD-40 to help loosen them up a little bit. On the last one here we are just going to take out this bolt here. What you want to do is spray this down pretty good with WD-40 and let it soak a little bit, because these bolts that sit out underneath the vehicle are prone to freezing up.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2007 Hyundai Sonota

This part also fits 2007 Hyundai Elantra. The first thing we need to do is open the trunk and take apart some of the interior lining. First well show you one of the access points for the wiring on the passengers side. Just take off this cover here, it unscrews, comes down, and its kind of hard to see but right here at this point is where we take apart the harness and install the T-1 connector. Simply push that button in and it comes apart. Before we can make our connection this panel has to come off and this panel here has to come off because we have to run the wire harness all the way across to the other side. To take off this panel here, theres one plastic rivet on each side of the panel. Once you get those taken out, gently pull up on it on both sides and maybe under here with a pry tool and the whole thing comes apart like that.
