Today on our 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe, well be installing the Tow Ready T1 connector, part number 118415. To begin our installation well first remove the rear threshold and rear cargo tray. To do this well first remove the three screws securing the rear cargo tray. Then well take our trim tool or a flat bladed screw driver, get underneath the rear threshold and pop it free from its fasteners. Now we can go ahead and take the rear cargo tray out of the vehicle and set it aside for re-installation later. Next well go ahead and remove the access panel on both the driver and passenger side.
Now we are ready to go ahead and start installing our T1 connector. Using a piece of fish wire or a stiff piece of wire or in this case a piece of air tubing, we are going to route it up behind the quarter panel on the drivers side to the manufacturers wire, the white connector located behind the access panel. Using a piece of electrical tape, well go ahead and secure the yellow and brown wire, leave and pull it up behind the access panel. Now we can go ahead and disconnect the manufacturers connection point, and plug in-line with our matching Tow Ready connectors. With our connectors secured, we can now take the white brown wire with the pre-attached ring terminal and ground it to the body of the vehicle.
Here behind this access panel, using the self tapping tool provided with our install kit, we can go ahead and do this. In this location here, where the sheet metal doubles up, is a perfect location for our ground. Now with that attached, we can go ahead and re-install the drivers side access panel. ext we can go to our converter box, peel back the double side adhesive and attach it to the clean, flat sheet metal here underneath the drivers side quarter panel. Next well take the red and green wire and route it over to the passenger side.
This wire will be underneath the rear threshold and cargo tray and get routed up behind the passenger side quarter panel just as we did on the drivers side with the yellow and brown wire. And go ahead and take our piece of air tubing or fish wire and pull the wire up behind the passenger side access panel. Well disconnect the manufacturers wire and plug in-line with our matching Tow Ready connectors. With that completed we can go ahead and re-install the access panel. Now we are ready to go ahead and re-install the rear cargo tray.
As we do, well route the four pole connector up into the rear cargo tray. Now that we have the three fasteners securing the cargo tray, we can go ahead and re-install the threshold. The weather strip should be just should be just over top the outer lip of the cargo threshold. This will complete the installation of our Tow Ready T1 connector. Now well go ahead and show you how to use it. Simply open up the rear cargo door, take your four pole connection and route it out to the hitch or accessory. Be careful to stay away from the latch as pinching the wire in the latch, cant harm it. However the weather stripping is thick enough that we can simply close the cargo door on it and it wont harm it. Then once youre completed using your new four pole connector well simply roll it up and store it here in with the spare tire tools and the cargo tray. And this will complete the installation of our Tow Ready T1 connector, part number 118415 on our 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe.
