Today on this 2007 Lincoln MKX, we're going to install part number 56067 from Curt. The first thing we need to do is go ahead over at the back hatch and remove the two tail lights. Now, we have two fasteners on each light that we have to remove. We're going to pull up on the tail light at a slight angle outward and then we can go ahead and remove the tail light. We'll disconnect here and here. We'll push down the tabs on top and we can take it apart.
Put our tail lights to the side. We're done with the driver's side for now. Let's go over and do it one more time on the passenger's side. Now, we can go ahead and start installing the T1 harness. We'll start off by taking the 4-pole wire.
We'll drop it down between the body and the bumper cover, and at the bottom. There are some plastic support pieces behind the bumper cover here so we have to be careful how we sneak it down. Basically, it's going to be right here through running our cable down. Next, we're going to go ahead and run our black wire which comes with the kit. Run it down the same path that we did with the 4-pole wire.
This will eventually get rammed to the battery. Then we'll go underneath the vehicle and pull our wires out. Now with this into the wire, we're going to connect to the power wire that's on our module. Now, we'll take our combined red and white wire and we'll ground it to the sheet metal. Next, we'll go ahead and clean up the spot on the sheet metal so get here our module tube.
We'll take one-half of adhesive, put it on the module and the other half will go to the sheet metal. We'll leave the driver's side alone for now. We're going to loosen up the bumper cover all the way around the edge here to the other tail light so we can hide our green wire behind that. Now, we'll go ahead and start tucking our green wire behind the bumper cover. This one, we'll go ahead and start reassembly of our tail light. We'll take our key harness connector and plug that into the factory wire harness, and the other half will snap into our tail light. Now, we'll take our 4-pole wire. We're going to route it along the hitch. Make sure to stay away from the exhaust and then route it to the center of our hitch. Now, we'll go ahead and zip tie our 4-pole wire to take up some of the extra slack to the bracket that's on the hitch. Now, we'll go ahead and add our cover for our 4-pole. Now, we can go ahead and run our black wire up to the battery and we'll run it along the frame rail up to the front. Now, we'll stay away from anything that's moving like the suspension components or steering components at the front of the vehicle, and anything hot like the exhaust. When we run our wire up from the suspension compartment, well go ahead and route it and make sure it stays safe and out of the way and we'll go ahead and add some zip ties to secure it. Now, we'll cut our wire short and then we'll add the fuse holder. And we'll take our fuse holder and cut it in half and on one side, we'll get the butt connector. In the other side, we'll get the ring terminal. Connect the butt connector to the black wire into the ring terminal. We'll go to the positive side of our battery. The last thing we'll do is add our fuse for our fuse holder. And with that, that will finish it for our install of part number 56067 from Curt.
