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.

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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • For a trailer hitch for your 2015 Hyundai Sonata you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24940. For trailer wiring you would want install the # C56247 and then make a converter adapter so that your taillight signals match up. The Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter # 118158 would work well to separate the combined turn signal circuits from your 2012 Subaru Outback with combined wiring to the separate wiring of your trailer. This would be the only product you would...

  • The roof rack I recommend for you is the Yakima Roof Rack with JetStream Crossbars # Y00426, BaseLine Towers # Y00146, BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06137, and BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06127. I confirmed with my contact at Yakima that they do not have any fit restrictions for the glass panoramic sunroof on your 2015 Hyundai Sonata and so this roof rack will work well for you. The Jetstream Crossbars are also available in silver # Y00429. I have attached a photo showing where this rack...

  • Curt trailer hitch # C11402 will fit all models of the 2015 Hyundai Sonata including your Sport turbo with dual exhaust. I have included a link to the installation details for you. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization...

  • 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...

  • 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 best trailer hitch for the 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid non-plug-in is the Draw-Tite part # 24940. For trailer wiring the custom fit Tow Ready Harness part # 118663 would be the best option as well. You will need the recommended ball mount. You would most likely use a hitch ball with a 1-7/8 inch diameter, like part # 19256 or the 2 inch hitch ball # 19258.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • The Rola Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59507, weighs approximately 69 lbs. Since your trailer hitch only has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, you most likely have a class I trailer hitch. This Rola cargo carrier is not compatible with class I trailer hitches. Instead, I would recommend taking a look at the Surco Cargo Carrier, # 52017, or the Draw-Tite Cargo Carrier, # 6500. Both of these cargo carriers weigh approximately 49 lbs and they are designed to work with class I trailer...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Hidden Hitch, item # 60816 (no longer available), comes with drawbar, item # 3592. This drawbar has a 2-1/8 inch rise and is to be used in the rise position only on your vehicle see instructions. Class 1 hitches are factory tested for safety and the recommended drawbar is the only drawbar that should be used for that vehicle, in the position recommended.

  • 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.

  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24940 will fit the 2016 Hyundai Sonata including hybrids but excluding plug-in models. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you. I checked with Hyundai and they only say that towing with this vehicle is not recommended and they do not provide a capacity. They don't say you can't tow though. If you do want to tow then the trailer hitch does not come with the proper ball mount. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use...
