Today on this 2003 Honda Pilot we will be installing Curt hitch part number 13328. Before we get started we are going to show you a couple of final installed dimensions that will help make choosing your hitch accessories a little bit easier. From the top of the receiver tube opening to the ground is 16-1/2 inches. From the center of the pin hole to clear the rear edge of the bumper is going to be approximately 5 inches. With that stated we can go ahead on to the installation. :24
We are going to start off underneath the vehicle. The first thing we need to do is lower the spare tire down to get it out of the way. We are going to start off by looking over here on the passenger side of the vehicle. You can see we have multiple existing weld nuts here in the frame. We are going to be using the three rearmost as our attaching points for our trailer hitch. If you move over to the driver side of the vehicle you can see we have an existing tow hook on this one. That needs to be removed. Then we will use the same three weld nuts on this side of the vehicle to attach the hitch as well. Finally, if we move to the center of the vehicle, on the back side of the bumper there are two vertical weld nuts. These are going to provide our final center attaching points for our trailer hitch. :59
With those pointed out the next thing we are going to do is remove the tow hook from the driver side. Then we will show you how to clean out the weld nuts. With the tow hook removed from the driver side, the trailer hitch is essentially ready to be put up in position. Go ahead and take a look at the weld nuts that did not have any bolts in them that have likely been exposed to the elements and have some corrosion and road grime built up in them. what we want to do is clean the weld nuts out thoroughly. To do this we are going to take a spray lubricant, like a WD-40 and spray those down. then take a wire brush and run that in there a few times. The combination of the two should remove most of the road grime and corrosion that is built up in there. you want to do that for the weld nuts in the frame and the back of the bumper as well. 1:39
Now that we have ensured that all of the weld nuts are clean, we can put the hitch up in position. into the weld nuts in the frame on both the driver and passenger sides we are going to be using 12 millimeter bolts along with a conical tooth washer. However, for the weld nuts in the back of the bumper, we are going to be using 10 millimeter bolts. With the hitch up in position and all the bolts tightened down we are going to go back through and torque each one of the bolts down as specified in the instructions. With that, that will conclude the installation of Curt hitch, part number 13328 on this 2003 Honda Pilot.
