Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Hyundai Sonata - Curt

Today on our 2016 Hyundai Sonata we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver part number C11402. Here's what the hitch looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see it does maintain a pretty clean look for the vehicle. Although you can see the cross tube for the frame of the hitch, it's very well tucked up against the bottom side of the fascia so it doesn't take away from look of your vehicle. We've got our safety chain connections here on the bottom with the steel plate welded with holes cut in it. We've got our 1/2" hitch pine hole right there with our 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" reinforced opening.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2016 Hyundai Sonata - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2016 Hyundai Sonata we're going to be taking a look at and installing the draw type class 1 sport frame trailer hitch receiver, part number 24940.

You've got your receiver tube here with the inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter opening. You've got the rolled steel hoops here for the safety chain connections. These ones, if you are planning on pulling a small trailer or anything like that, these would be really good because they do give you plenty of space to be able to get the hook in there.

Hyundai Sonata Questions

  • We do have a hydraulic disc brake kit that will fit 8 bolt hub, 8 on 6-1/2 Inch bolt pattern, 1/2 inch bolts. In addition to a hydraulic disk brake kit, you will also need a brake line kit, and a electric over hydraulic actuator, and a brake controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes. For a disc brake kit to replace your drum brake assembly, you will need the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit, part # K2HR712, which is designed for 7,000 lb axles, 16 Inch or larger...

  • Yes, two of the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier part # TH835PRO would easily fit on a set of 53 inch long Thule Aeroblade bars # THARB53. Be sure not to exceed the weight capacity for the roof of your vehicle/roof rack as well. I attached a review video for this kayak carrier.

  • The Timbren suspension system, like # A20RS440, is designed to be toe-in when there is no load on it. So when the load is placed on it it will push the tire out so that it is riding straight on the ground. Provided the trailer is not overloaded and the tires are trailer tires and inflated to the maximum psi as indicated on the tire, then you should not see excessive wear and get more than just a few thousand miles out of a set. A regular axle has a bow in it. That bow should...

  • Curt is actually a pretty well-known manufacturer of towing products. Their trailer hitches are on par with Reese and Draw-Tite. I would say # C11025 is as strong as the other hitches for the same vehicle. But something that you need to be aware of is that this is a class I trailer hitch and you are limited to carrying 2 bikes on a class I hitch on a rack compatible with class I hitches. The Curt warranty also requires the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, with any non-trailer...

  • The reverse lamps for a 2011 CR-V are in the taillight assemblies, not on the liftgate. You can access the wiring harnesses that feed the taillight assemblies by removing the interior panel on either side of the cargo area. Use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to probe the wires in the harness, as a helper puts the car in reverse with the engine off. The correct circuit should be hot, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding the correct wire. I don't have any specific information...

  • Based on my research it appears that a 2010 Hyundai Sonata with automatic transmission cannot be flat-towed. However, I suggest you double-check your owners manual and/or speak to a Hyundai dealer to confirm. Front wheel drive automatic transmission vehicles usually require either disconnection of the drive shaft or addition of a transmission lubrication pump in order to be flat towed. However, there is a simpler option that does not require modification of your vehicle. A...

  • After speaking to my contact at Curt, I have found that when it comes to issues such as the one you are facing with the Curt Circuit-Protected Powered Converter # 56146 on your Hyundai Sonata, you should double check the input on the red wire to the box. Curt has had customers with issues with scotch locks or their splice being bad in these situations. If all the signals are going into the box, it should work. If you can get all the signals working at the 4 flat with a standard...

  • It sounds like a bad ground connection. What you will do is disconnect the trailer from the vehicle. Then make sure the ground for the wiring harness # C56049 is attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. Use a circuit tester like # 3808 if you do not already have one to test the pins on the 4-Way while someone sits in the vehicle and goes through all the lighting functions. If the brake lights/turn signals still do not work use hte circuit tester to test the...

  • The shank on the Kuat Beta for 1-1/4 inch receivers, part # is constructed of steel, while the rest of the rack is constructed of aluminum. This gives the 1-1/4 inch model the same 80 lb weight capacity as the model for 2 inch receivers, part # B202-2. I would consider any Kuat rack to be bullet-proof. You would be best served by going with the B202-114 model, because using an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity (maximum downward force that can be applied) of your...

  • You will need to take a couple of quick measurements to see if the replacement steps we offer will work on your Forest River Trailer. One of the 2-step pull-out steps we offer is the Lippert, part # LC341500. This has a retracted height of 9 inches and is designed to be mounted in a space that measures 25-1/4 inches wide x 9 inches deep. The steps are 24 inches wide. Per Lippert, the 2-step Lippert step will fit in the space that the single step was installed. We also...

  • Does the display light up when your vehicle turns on? That would indicate that the controller has power and is grounding properly. If a trailer is connected it should read .c on the display and if there isn't a trailer connected it should read n.c. If you apply the manual override lever with a circuit tester on the brake output pin of your vehicle's 7-way you should see voltage register there. That would indicate the controller is working properly. Lastly, you could try connecting...

  • The Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are basically the same design and one would not be less conspicuous than the other behind your Sonata. The only real difference in these two hitches is that the ball mount, pin and clip are provided with the Hidden Hitch model, item # 60269 (no longer available). Many of our customers select the round tube hitch style when appearance is a factor. The rounded cross tube normally blends better with the underside of the vehicle and sort of disappears....

  • The components needed to tow a trailer include a trailer hitch receiver, ball mount, pin and clip, trailer hitch ball, and a wiring harness. I have included an article which covers this. To get your 2007 Hyundai Sonata ready for towing, I recommend the following: Trailer Hitch - Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 24757. This is a custom fit hitch offering a 2,000 lb towing capacity and bolt-on installation. No drilling or welding is required. Ball Mount - Sportframe...

  • The best way to carry a girl's or women's bike on a hanging style bike rack like the Thule Vertex # TH9029XT is to use a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, providing a level attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes the ground clearance. As long as the distance between the seatpost and the handlebar gooseneck is greater than 16 inches, the adapter...

  • To replace the existing 4.80-12 size tires on your Carry-On utility trailer, I recommend the Taskmaster Bias Trailer Tire, 4.80-12, Load Range C # TTWSF48012C. For this tire mounted on a wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern you can use the Taskmaster 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Spoke Wheel, 5 on 4-1/2, Load Range C # TTWAS12B45WSHP. This tire and wheel combo will work well to replace existing 4.80-12 size tire and wheel with 5 on 4-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern....

  • I checked with Saris and while they don't recommend your Bones as a fit for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata they do list their Porter part # SA312B as a fit. If you do not want to go the hitch mounted route this would be a great option. For the 3 bike version of this rack you would want the part # SA313B. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • To provide an attachment point for a tow bar, base plates like the Blue Ox # BX2330 would need to be installed on the vehicle. In order to use the Tow Ready # 63180 you referenced, you would also need an adapter, part # BX8833. However, that particular tow bar is only rated for 45 mph, so I would consider using a different tow bar like the Blue Ox Acclaim, part # BX4330. The Acclaim would require no adapters, includes the necessary safety cables, and would allow you to travel...

  • The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24940 will fit your 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. This hitch does not include the ball mount. To install on your vehicle you will need to lower the exhaust and the heat shield will need to be trimmed. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Draw-Tite. The instructions will show in detail where the heat shield needs to be trimmed. If you will be towing with this hitch you will also need the following items. Tow...

  • The heat shield should not have to be trimmed with the Curt hitch. You may need to elongate a mounting slot on the heat shield at most. For a Draw-Tite or Hidden Hitch trailer hitch, heat shield modification is needed and I have included a link to a picture that shows what needs to be trimmed. If you are talking about the appearance panel, the trimming dimensions for models of the 2011 Hyundai Sonata that have the underbody panel are in the instructions which I have linked...

  • You will first want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make sure you can tow with your 2012 Hyundai Sonata. We do offer trailer hitches that are designed to fit your Sonata. I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24940. This is a Class l trailer hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I have attached an installation video for this hitch on a 2012 Sonata you can check out. For a ball mount I recommend part # 3593. This ball mount can be...
