Trailer Hitch Installation - 2009 Scion xB

Today on this 2009 Scion xB we will be installing trailer hitch part number 12490 from Curt. Okay we are underneath the vehicle and we are taking a look at the passenger-side frame rail. I am going to go ahead and point out the mounting locations for the trailer hitch. As you can see here at the end of the frame rail we have got three existing weld nuts, and we are going to be using those as our attaching points. We will be taking the 12 millimeter bolts and conical tooth washers that are provided with our installation kit and threading them directly in there.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2008 Scion XB

Today we are going to install part number 12490 from Curt. And we are going to install this hitch on a 2008 Scion XB. First we will show you how this hitch installs on the vehicle. It is going to install on these three holes that are existing in the frame right now, and they are threaded. On some older vehicles, you may have to clean those out with a wire brush and some high lubricant - or, in worst-case scenario, a thread tap. Also what we are going to have to do is take down our exhaust. Spray down this hanger here with some lubricant and then slide it off. And you can tell we have already did spray a little bit of that. That will lower the muffler out of our way so we can get our work done. And then on the drivers side, this tie-down bracket will have to come off and stay off. And the hitch will go back into its place. What you want to do next is go ahead and check the holes. Run a a bolt in there. Make sure they thread in there okay. Like I said, if it is dirty, you may have to take a few steps and clean them out. And once you get everything started and, you know, make sure it looks good and clean, then you can go ahead and install your hitch at this point.
