Today on this 2010 Honda Accord, were gonna install part number 24834 from Draw-Tite. This is also applies to part number 60236 in Hidden Hitch.This is what the hitch looks like once its installed in the vehicle. Next, well give you some measurements thatll help you out in selecting some accessories such as the ball mount, a bicycle rack or a cargo carrier. From the top of the receiver opening down to the ground on this particular vehicle is going to be 12 inches. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outside edge of the bumper is going to be about 6 inches. Now well go ahead and show you how the hitch is installed in the vehicle.The first thing we need to do is go ahead and lower the exhaust out of the way because whats gonna happen is the hitch is gonna mount on the frame above the exhaust.
So were gonna lower it by putting lubricant on the hangers. Theres one here and one in the back. Well also do one last hanger going towards the front of the vehicle thats right above the rear axle. You can also put up a strap to the car so when we lower the exhaust it wont go out of control.Alright, next thats going to happen is we unload this heat shield out of the way as we have bolts here. We have two above the muffler.
One towards the back of the vehicle and one going towards the front of the vehicle and we have one back here hiding also.Next, well go ahead and show you where the hitch mounts up on the vehicle. Were gonna use this existing hole in the frame here, well use this tie down loop in the center and so theres gonna be the same identical hole on the passenger side also. Alright, lets go ahead and install the hardware that well use to get it to the frame to install the hitch and thats gonna be this access hole here.So were gonna take our plate and our bolt and were gonna use our pole wire to pull up through to this hole here. And if you note half of the time this is not gonna fit so we have to enlarge this hole. You can do it with a file but use a simple, chisel which will make a notch in it and thatll be perfectly alright to just get us enough room to put the hardware in and thats what were gonna do.Were gonna repeat the same process on both sides of the vehicle.
Go ahead and start with the pull wire right through the hole were going to use and then out of our access hole. Well take a plate and put it through. Lets go ahead and push it into the frame. Now lets take a bolt and thread it on, push that in and pull it out the other side. You can leave this off or you can actually leave these wires on to help thread this on to the hitch.
Ill go ahead and leave this on for a change. Well repeat the same process back on the other side.Alright, were almost ready to install the hitch. What were gonna do next is install a u-bolt over the tie down bracket here. Were gonna start by leading one on the hitch over the muffler and then were gonna go ahead and attach the hitch on the u-bolt first. On the driver side, were gonna go ahead and take our pull wire and put it through the hole in the hitch and then push into position and then were gonna go ahead and take our wire free and install a conical tooth washer and nut. Well leave that loose. Well go to the passenger side and repeat the same process. Before you tighten it down all the way, take a second also to move the hitch and center it the way you want it. Alright, next we can go ahead and start snug in down the bolts and well snug them all evenly down and then well go ahead and torque them as specified in the instructions.Next step is go ahead and reinstall this heat shield. And right now were just gonna temporarily place it on the exhaust and were gonna see what we need to cutout to make room for the hitch so we can reattach it. Theres no real exact science to this. Its just more or less putting it as close we can making the marks as needed so you have room to cut out the heat shield. The heat shield cuts very easily with a set of tin snips. Somewhere along those lines right there so we can slide it back and make room for a hitch bolt right here. I think were just gonna cut out this section here.Alright. Now we can go ahead and reinstall the exhaust to the hangers.And there you have it for part number 24834 from Draw-Tite.
