Today on this 1997 Chevy Venture van we are going to install Tow Ready T-One connector, part number 118355. The first step is going to be to access the rear hatch area. We are going to remove the threshold and get into the side panel here where we will need to make our connection. You want to gently get under and pry up on the threshold. Remove it out of your way. We have a Phillips screw we have to remove here from this hold down. And we are going to get in behind our panel here and pull it away to access our trailer plug. You see here, after we have pealed back the trim panel, we have located the plug for the rear taillight. There is a small locking tab. You need to press on that. Separate the two connectors. We are going to take our new Tow Ready connector. We are just going to plug that inline with the manufacturer connector. Make sure you press them together firmly, that the locking tabs snap into place. 0:59
And what we are going to do is locate a suitable place to mount our module. You can see here it has the double sided adhesive. The inside of this sheet metal will do perfectly. We are going to remove the adhesive cover. We are just going to tuck our wires back in the body cavity to make room for mounting our module to the sheet metal. Now what we need to do is locate a suitable ground. This sheet metal will do perfectly. I am going to use a self-tapping screw. Go ahead and install that now. Now that we have got our ground wire in place, I am going to tuck any extra wire back in here behind the trim panel. Go ahead and take my new 4-pole lead and route it down here between the carpeting and the floor out here to my cargo area. Now I can go ahead and put my trim panels back in place. 1:52
Now our interior is back together. Our 4-pole lead is in place. To use our new 4-pole lead, what we will do is just route it to the center of the vehicle, it down to our trailer or hitch that we will be hooking up to. The weather stripping here around the door frame will be thick enough that it will not pinch the wire. Stay away from the latch. When you are not using the wire, it will just be rolled up and left here in the cargo area of your vehicle. And that completes the installation of part number 118355 on our 1997 Chevy Venture van.
Today on this 2001 Chevrolet Venture were going to install part number 118355 from Tow Ready. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and get inside the vehicle. This vehicle has the air compressor for suspension, so were going to have to get behind the panel behind the taillight. First off well remove the threshold panel at the very bottom in the back. Then well free up the panel on the side to get access to our wiring. Once we pull the opening out well go ahead and look for our connector.
Today on this 2004 Chevrolet Venture we are going to be installing Tow Ready T-One connector, part number 118355. First we are going to access the rear cargo area. Then we are going to remove the side panel access door. Take it off and set it out of the way. You will see there are two fasteners here holding the black cover on, we are going to remove them now. We will set that out of the way. :23
Today on this 2002 Chevrolet Venture we are going to install part number 118355 from Tow Ready. This T- One wire harness actually connects inside the vehicle on the driver side underneath the interior panel. Okay, it is going to be behind this panel right here. So to get to this panel we have to take off this threshold first. When you take this threshold off, there is a bunch of little connections in here. And this one button here rips very easy so be careful when you take it apart. Okay, we will take this fastener apart. And then we will start peeling back the panel. All right, we pulled the panel back, now we have access to our port right here. On some models, this port is actually down below the A/ C unit sometimes too. So it can be a real bear to find but we got lucky here and it is pretty much right out in the open.
