Today we are going to install part number 119175 from Tow Ready, and this is their Circuit Protected Converter Wire Harness. And we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. To install this wire harness, we are going to have to get behind both sets of tail lights on this vehicle. We are going to take off the tail lights, get to the wiring behind them, and then we will make our hard-wire connections to the circuits themselves. We will just go ahead and take the lights off loose. The reason why we are taking the lights off is so we can find the function of each wire inside here, rather than just poking a bunch of different holes in the wire. So it saves a little bit of wear and tear on the wire. Next we will take some bolts out and loosen up the fascia so we can run our wires from below up through here, along the edge of the body work and into the tail light.
Today we are going to install part number 70534 from Hidden Hitch, and we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Before we begin our install, it is a good idea to take down the spare tire to give us more working room and plus you can see what is going on a little bit easier, too. First off, we will show you where the hitch mounts onto the frame. It is going to mount onto the bottom of the frame where this tow hook is. That tow hook is going to have to come off. It also is going to attach to the side of the frame using these two bolt holes on the drivers side. This has got to go, and we will be using these two existing holes, too. Next, we will clean out our threaded holes in the frame. We are just using a battery terminal brush, and we are just going to run it in the threads to help clean it out. Keep running the brush in and out and spraying it until you get it good and clean, and then take your bolt and run it in a few threads at a time until you get it to go all the way through the nut. You are going to have to do this for all four bolts. All right, now we will start taking down these tie-down hooks.
Today we are going to install part number 119175, the protected tail light converter, and we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. We are going to tap in behind the tail lights. I am going to take this off, and then we are going to run a wire on the outside here, underneath the bumper cover. And this is where the converter box will hide, underneath here. All right, the next thing we are going to do is pull this bumper cover away from it. We are just going to use a simple brake tool and just work our way behind it, just enough where you can run a fish wire through there and out the bottom.
Today we are going to install part number 13223 from Curt, and we are going to install this on a 2003 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. We will show you where the hitch mounts up on the frame. It reuses these existing holes where these bolts are right now. This tie-down hook actually gets taken off the vehicle and left off, and it is going to be the same thing on the passengers side, where this tie-down loop will get taken off as well. And these pieces will stay off the vehicle. Also, we did take down the spare tire, just to get a little easier working room, and the spare tire will go back up in its place when we are done. All right, when you take this down, there is a threaded fitting here which the hitch uses, too. We are going to take some time here and actually clean that out really good. Spray it down with some lubricant and run the bolt in and out. Sometimes, in an aged vehicle, you may have to run a tap through it to clean it out.
